|The Marlborough Booth Just Prior to Show Opening
As we passed through Utica, New York the clouds lifted and things looked brighter. The roads were clear and we began to make up lost time. We ran into a few other snow squalls that made for an interesting drive. Snowflakes’ coming at you in full force at night reminds me of the jump to hyper-space in Star Wars!
Snow ploughs were out in full force and by the time we arrived in Marlborough at around 8pm Streets were clear and with the exception of the snow banks along the road you would never had known there had been a major snow fall. Luck was on our side as we were travelling just behind the leading edge of the front. The Boston area received over 20 inches of snow and we were fortunate to miss it. The rest of the weekend featured beautiful blue banner skies and crisp temperatures.
During the show I presented a couple of destination seminars on the Atlantic salmon opportunities in Newfoundland and Labrador along with a presentation on the trophy brook trout Labrador is famous for. Saturday’s programs were particularly well attended. Feedback from show attendees was unbelievably positive. It seems The New Fly Fisher is well known through our WFN and NESN broadcasts.
I managed to catch up with a few friends at the show such as Jeff Currier and make a few new ones in the process.
James is a great caster and our location adjacent to the casting pond was perfect for him. During his breaks he managed to get up there on one occasion showing everyone his soon to be famous Sidney Shoot!
