So I fired up the computer and this was the image that greeted me when I went onto Facebook, which I do for the Marketplace. Anyway, its from 8 years ago, January 25, 2012. That's me on the third floor of the corner building at Broad and Monmouth and Streets in Red Bank. It was cold and freezing outside and I needed to practice for my upcoming FFF Casting Instructor Exam (CI) at The Fly Fishing Show.
Well, I attended the class, passed the written, spit the bit on the performance, mostly instructional portion, and was told "I was very close". I took it the next year, and failed that time also. No three's a charm here, I'm good.
