How did the presentation go? I was planning on going to the meeting last night but my wife had something come up after work so I had to stay home with the baby which was fine but would have liked to hear/see the presentation.

It was a great time. About 50-60 people and it was good to talk some fishing when it was 14 degrees outside! The NE Fly Rodders are a solid bunch. If you're looking to join a club, this would be one of the most organized and dedicated to the fly.

I am a member. Just couldn't make the meeting.

I'll second your statement that the members are a great bunch of people. I went on some of the trips last year and had a fantastic time. We didn't even catch fish on one of the trips but I still had a great time. Learned a lot from some very experienced people.

Those guys are nuts in a good way. Plenty of energy and goodwill. One of the friendliest bunches of fishermen Iíve come to know.

When I leave home, away from home, these guys make me feel at home.
