I've fished with Ger Moua multiple times. We pick each other's brain frequently...if you have the opportunity to chat with him I highly recommend it!

Not sure if I will make the Madison show, I wish they had more content specifically for stream trout people (besides TU). Len Harris did a presentation a few years ago and it seemed to be pretty well attended. Several people on this board are more than qualified to do a one hour seminar on driftless trout angling, somebody should volunteer.

I want to plug a business with a booth at the show--Mat's Reel Repair Service from Eagle River. I don't have a personal connection with Mat Hegy the owner other than that he has cleaned and repaired several of my vintage reels and is very competent. He had no problem with tasks that my local sources could not do. If you make the show, introduce yourself, if you have a reel needing repair, you can leave it with him now and he'll ship it back to you.

Would have stayed under if not for the bargain area at the end. Mostly stuff I didn’t need but they did have a couple baskets of Panther Martins for $2.50 each. I bought all of the size 6s they had and a couple 4s and my tally came to over $60.

Good thing they didn’t have 9s too. Crazy good deal.

The rest of the show was fun to walk through and I grabbed a bunch of plastics that I hadn’t seen before and some bass jigs in colors that I also hadn’t seen before.

Lots of outfitters From Ontario and the north woods as to be expected.

Met my TU people for the first time and volunteered to Fishing Without Boundaries. Spoke with a Driftless guide and several bass yahoos. Spoke with a DNR game warden about... stuff.

Fun time. Glad I went.
