This is a very short story of how friendships are formed in this industry. Most of the time it starts with a phone call with a question. Other times it's an invite to be a guest tier in a shop. But most of the time the friendship starts when the cheap beer and pizza hit the table. This is commonly followed by hours of stories about fishing, tying, and college glory days.
One of the coolest parts of my job, is the opportunity to host well known folks in this industry. This past weekend was a 4 day adventure with Greg Senyo, that started out with him driving 9 hours from Ohio to Reading. The first thing he requested was Chinese Food, an hour later we are munching down, and hearing stories about life as a fly fisherman turned Cop. The rest is history, enjoy the pictures.
