Friday Notes, on a Friday!!

Just got back from a company trip to Florida – yes, I can hear all the sobs out there.  Well – it WAS really crappy, cold, windy weather.  But I managed to get out and fish for an hour and a half, and actually caught a big snook.  (Well – big for me).  But enough about me, and why we seem to be unable to push START on this machine these days …

Be sure to check in at Joel DeJong’s blog – A Year on the Fly.  “Why?”, you ask.  Well, it’s always a worthwhile read, but it’s especially good right now.  Joel’s blogpost – http://ayearonthefly.blogspot.com/2013/02/free-original-art-plus-trip-report.html  – features a great trip report with his recently acquired Fall River Bamboo Fly Rod, and also has a killer contest for 3 lucky people to win some of his artwork, including the Grand Prze of one of his originals.  Gotta tell you, folks – this is some GREAT artwork!  I am the very proud owner of two of Joel’s original pieces, and they are even better in person than they appear on the website.  He is a truly talented artist.  Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m headed over there to enter to win yet another of his wonderful paintings …

Finally, we will actually be starting the Gear Review Opportunity again, with the kickoff on Wednesday 2/27.  Be sure to check back for some great stuff to review.

As always – thanks to all of you.  Have a great weekend, and stay warm and dry.

Joe and Rebecca
