Lew, a question:

What value can the average fly fisherman get from attending this conference? In other words, is it worth it?  ???

Joe,   Heaven forbid that that here is any implication or guilt trip connected to having to go to this conference to be a better flyfisher. There is nothing in it for them except maybe some understanding why they have places to fish. Everybody decide for themselves. I can not say what I think or what I think is the best part of this conference..got to be politically correct and all. Beleive me the politicains are going to use this as a forum and it is going to get some press. That's there boggle and hopefully can stay away from it.  Just like fishing you got to figure out the best water to fish and not waste your time on frog water.
Do you pay for the guide or try it on your own?  LEW
