8/20/18.. Things have started to move along a bit more this past week and after this Thursday it should hopefully bring me to the point where I can possibly book a flight to Jersey to go and get the Motor Home and pull the Show trailer back down here to Florida to do some needed repairs on it and to unload a ton of equipment and the last load of household goods that I have packed in it from the house sale in Jersey, I have been speaking with some Show promoters about the 2019 Show season. Looks like we will be adding at least one more major Show to our Event Calendar in New England and possibly two. Plus we confirmed with Rick Rosalina, President of OSG. for having the AFFS Trailer at the Garden State Outdoors Show again this January 10 - 13th. We will be exhibiting at a lot more Events such as Boat Shows, Art Festivals and Fishing Tournaments in Florida during 2019 now that Bill and Barb Haldaman are located here. Our "New" older Motorhome will be the AFFS mobile office for many of our future events once we have completed rigging it up inside with all the fly fishing and video tech equipment, We also plan on giving it a new graphics facelift to compliment the A.F.F.S. Show trailer it will be towing. This is how it looks at present waiting for the new graphics to be applied.
Bill Haldaman is selling his 5th wheel camper that is a really nice unit for someone to enjoy. I have it listed on Craig's list and Let Go here in Florida and posted on all the major online sites for selling RV's nationwide, Through our association with a marketing network for RV's, Boats, Campers and Trucks.

After a week into this month, I finally have gotten around to posting again. The fly fishing scene is not all we hoped it would be this midsummer. Here in S.W. Florida we have been hit with a double "whammy" of Green Algae and Red Tide "blooms". The word from the Executive Industry Committee to the Florida incumbent Governor Scot in office last year at ICAST was "You fix this Okeechobbe / Everglades water problem or start looking for a different line of occupation than a politician, as you will not be elected even as a dog catcher any place in this State. Well, a year has come and gone and the situation is worse than last year.
I understand that no Governor can make federal authorities do anything by ordering them to do so. ie: Army Corp of Engineers running water releases from the dam at Lake Okeechobee into the Caloosahatchee River but he can publically use his office to protest federal actions concerning these activities through the Media which he has ready access to and he can also refuse political contributions made to his fundraising. neither of which he has done except for recent press statements since the problem has been headlining on the News outlets. Quite frankly I normally prefer Republican politicians and their policies to those of tax and spend socialist programs that most Democrats prefer. In this case, however, it is so basic a need for correction that I would support a Democrat, Liberal, Socialist, Monarchist or any other political party affiliate that will actually fix this mess, because if it is not fixed "fairly" soon then everything here in the American tropics will eventually collapse. The State Governors do have the power to remove residents from areas that are directly negatively impacting the welfare and economy of their States and the overall health of the economy of their States. People living in "shabby" trailer parks or farms close by Lake O's southern perimeter will have to be removed and resettled into other areas (like it or not) so that water releases from Lake O can be fed more directly into the Everglades after water treatment has been performed on this Lake water, which is too high in chemical composition from farming and ranching in areas north of Lake O which are feeding the excessive harmful "nutrients", pesticides, etc. into the watercourse that leads naturally south through Lake O then on to the Glades and eventually out into the Gulf. Miners, Farmers, Citrus Growers, Ranchers, Communities and their residents located north of Lake O will have to comply with all regulations imposed for clean water release in this area. As for the Red Tide blooms and the massive fish and wildlife kills they bring along the coastline, there is less that can be done about this, other than the speedy removal of its casualties until science perfects an antidote to this bacteria that removes oxygen from seawater. Some years due to tides, currents, wind and inner ocean forces we receive less or more Red Tide along our beaches. This year has been worse than other years and coupled with the unrelated Algae problem it has simply compounded and worsened the entire sad situation. A fellow resident of the "Village" that I live in posted his comments about this problem on the O.B. Village F.B. Page yesterday and put it very well into historic context that is worth reading to better understand the situation at hand and how it got this bad..
