Good event, early drizzle. 31+ attended most stayed for the whole morning. Best new rod IMHO Sage X series, great fast rod with feel & Redington Predator 7 & 9 wt. - great rods for a great price both brought by Jeremy @ Dupage Fly. Liked the Orvis Recon 7 wt. brought by Tim from Yorktown store plus the Orvis superfine glass. Bob D. brought a sweet Winston 5wt. I put out vintage glass Phillipson, Silaflex, & Fishers. Best glass rod there was (again) Ed B. Orvis Fullflex 6 wt. late 60's rod. Doug Taylor had new switch & spey Sage rods & spent the whole morning teaching 2 handed casting. Many thanks to the core members who always help plus a reminder to shop local whenever you can - Dupage Fly Fishing Co. & Orvis Yorktown both have good people with lots of knowledge, always willing to share.

Thanks to John, Jeremy at Dupage Fly Shop, Tim at Orvis and all who helped make this another great event. I was intrigued by the spey casting demonstration put on by Doug Taylor but unfortunately was not able to try it out. Maybe next year. Here are a couple of photos taken during the picnic.
