Wayne’s at ICAST!

images (1)Today Wayne texted me from ICAST 2013 in Las Vegas-

I’m overwhelmed! There is more fishing tackle here than any show I have ever seen. Maybe 4 times larger than San Mateo in its heyday…Ive seen Lefty Teeny Rajeff, Clouser, Curcione, Bill Dance, Roland Martin, Jimmy Houston, Gary Dobyns, Shaw Grigsby , Bobby Barrack, Mike Iaconeli and a bunch of hot chicks!  Tell Gina I was standing next to Byron Velvick.
