Hi, my name is Joe (Hi Joe).  I’m a tackle whore…got a lot, bring a lot when I go out.  I constantly like trying out new things on the water.  So when I got to ICAST and looked down one of the long aisles, all I could do was silently whisper to myself, WOW (and then I took a pic and tweeted it out).   I separated out all the materials I brought home into piles and am eagerly plotting what to use first and how I plan to use it.

That being said, what I’ll remember most are all the great people I met.  Many are people that I’ve been interacting with online for months, many I met for the first time.  Here are a sampling of the many cool people I got to meet, network with and just have a great time trading fish stories with at my first ICAST.  Thanks to you and the many others I didn’t get pics with/of, but whose company I truly enjoyed.  Tight lines!
