Well done Nemo. I went to the Masshole one this year and found it rather unremarkable. I did meet a little known author named Bob Romano who was a real pleasure to chat about fly fishing with and got a chance to catch up with Fishy Fullum again after several years. Other than than that the most remarkable thing about the show was the hot Aussie chick trying to sell me a $300 fishing vest/jacket that had just short of a hundred pockets scattered around it. Exactly what I need, more pockets on my vest 'cause I don't carry too much shit already! It was interesting to see and there were some good deals on tying materials and trinkets, but I doubt I'll spend the time/money/energy to go back next year. I sorta feel like I've been there and done that, but no need to do it again.n It will be interesting to see how this all plays out and what the difference between the shows really is, if any.
