Sorry this is a bit late. Came back from the show then straight back into work and only now starting to get back into the swing of things.

The ICRBE was great. Met many old friends and made many new ones. I was fortunate enough to give seminars on VisualWRAP and Rod Photography in the NERBs booth, and had a great time demonstrating my various products. Thanks to all those who dropped by, and especially those who showed their support!

The NERBs booth was packed for much of the show. Looking at the caliber and volume of rods on display it is no wonder why. Every time Billy started talking about tools and techniques it drew a crowd. Chase's stabilized wood and Bill's fishy grips are quality products. How often do you get the opportunity to speak to the makers of the products you use on your rods? The amount of quality information available at the show, delivered first hand by those who are actively working in the field, is outstanding.

The ICRBE is a fantastic event, thank you Tom for the work you put into this to make it happen every year. We are already making plans for the next one.

Tight Wraps!
