Anyone know if the 'On The Fly' whaler will be there?

I know he got 'banned' here, but he did plan this event and was going to attend, I thought. Has anyone heard anything from Don?

Yes,

It was a selfish rant. Intentionally so. I'm selfish, especially about what should be a simple issue.

I completely disagree with that 'mission statement'. Fishing and hunting...
