I talked to Mike at Mahoney's yesterday. I mentioned I had seen on this message board that he would be tying for the festival. He seemed to be excited and also mentioned that he is coming to a Saturday tying class this winter. For those who don't know him, he is a really nice guy and if your ever in town and need a guide on the SoHo or Watauga he is excellent at catching the big ones on those tailwaters. Glad to see he is going to be helping out at LRO.
