Title: Past Few Days

The Hackensaw Boys - Down South Blues (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dPIMregIyyA#ws)


Put the finishing touches on my blowout and made my way up to the dirty Jerz. First time North of DC since I was 12. I was expecting serious culture shock. Didn't get the whole Jersey experience. Only left the hotel once. The show was alright. Probably won't go back.

I did meet some awesome people. People that you think only exist on the internet. People you read about and think would be huge douchers or fishing pricks. Completely wrong. Really awesome guys who just love to fish.

I was definitely ready to leave the grundle of America and get back to the Valley. Hit the spring creek first thing.

Streamer fishing slowed so I tried to to catch a few babies on midges. The out of towners have been beating the hell out of this creek lately. Judging by conversations with fishermen and where they left boot prints, I'm pretty sure the fish are safe. But the banks and the water are taking a beating. Maybe I'll give this creek a break until it gets cold again and I can have it to myself.

HAHA Jersey Shore Trout Unlimited. So do they do the whole GTL thing before they hit the creek?  ;D

Nice. I was up at the show on Saturday.  The lady's parents live about 20 minutes south of there, so she shops in Princeton while I search for discounted hackle...it works out nicely.   ;D   What's crazy is that the Somerset show is biggest FF show in the world (so they like to say)...they cram 10K+ people in that building during the 3-day weekend year in and out.

New show in Lancaster, PA this year...you should consider hitting that one next year so you can get your FF show AND spring creek fix in one place.

Yeah I picked up a few saddles from the Keough booth. I don't understand how it's the biggest. You'd think the Denver show would be bigger. But there were a shitload of people in that convention center Saturday.
