A shout-out to Tom Smithwick for all his efforts as Chairman and thanks to the museum team for all their hard work.
For Team Canada we enjoy the camaraderie and the majestic environs and those big hugs from our good friends. It sadly marks the passage of time as we all get older but that too is inevitable.
I always leave a little more pumped up for rod building, a few more ideas, tips and suggestions. The museum is a treasure trove of rods and flies that need to be revisited and inspected. The side trips with Jorge and Carl are another highlight. Can man ever have too many tools, rods, reels and parts? Apparently not.
So Roscoe it is for 2014, the Canadian party is growing, soon we may need an addition on the stilts house, Donna, are you reading this?
