Thanks for the invite John. Even though I don't fly fish it was nice to see some familiar faces. I was high bidder on three silent auction items. Perhaps it's time to give fly fishing a try...now that I own six books about fly fishing and 15 flys B) Thanks to Craig and Rich for donating those items!


I'll post a couple pics that I took and John can explain what they are about.

Thanks, Don.

The frame contains a watercolor by Jim Tingey of Catch & Release Artwork & a fly tied by Joe Cornwall at the first ISA Fly Show. Spiz won the item at auction & presented it to me afterwards to commemorate that event. Thank you Spiz it is greatly appreciated. Nice pics too, Don.

The auction went well - looks like Drift is funded at about the same rate as last year, no small feat in this economy. Don, Spiz & all other bidders - you hauled the load today. Together we accomplish what none of us can do alone.

Don, I have a flyrod waiting for you to use... just say when you are ready.
