Thanks to all of the ACF customers support 2012 has been an amazing year. Shows and workshops took me all over the eastern side of the country, as did the search for fish. There were a few flies fine tuned and released to go along with the old ones, and more in the works. 2012 saw the continued explosion in the popularity of streamers and the educated fish kept us tinkering at our vises like junkies to get our next fix. I could not name them all but guys like Strolis, Lynch, Granato, Grajewski, Senyo, Schultz, Bohen, Kelly, and Cohen all played a part to push the envelope for bigger, badder, and more realistic imitations to get the predators moving...it has been an exciting time to be at the vise! I am putting this post up a few days early as I will be out of town for a few days through New Years to recharge for a few days with my wonderful wife. When I get back to town I will be back at the vise hard and transition in to the heart of show season.
Next year looks to be another exciting year for ACF. There are a few streamers that are in the works and should be ready to go in the next few months. This coming year I have added a few shows so will be out to TCO in State College for a streamer workshop, as well as Lancaster PA for a weekend show and over to Sweden in April for their show as well...and maybe swing up an Atlantic...
Thank you all for a truly amazing year and looking forward to catching up over the next year.
Back to the vise and the blog January 3!
