Any San Franciscans with a spare room for SOR?

Travis Johnson and his wife and young child are coming to SF for Spey O Rama. They arrive in San Francisco around April 16 and depart about a week later.

Travis is a steelhead guide on Oregon's rivers and is one of the world's very best Spey casters, having placed highly at Spey O Rama and winning the European championship last year. He is one of a handful to beat at SOR 2013. To frost the cake, Bob Pauli mentioned that Travis was an NCAA champion in at least two categories of wrestling during his college years.

If anyone has extra space for Travis and his family during SOR, please contact him directly at "speycaster-at-hotmail-dot-com"

Carron Speycasting Team - C'est fini

I just asked one of the [now former] Carron Speycasting Team members when they planned to arrive in SF for Spey-o-Rama. I was surprised to learn that the Carron team had been disbanded by the company's owner some time last year.

As many who have attended Spey-o-Rama can attest, the Carron Team was perhaps the single best promotional activity a rod & line company could have sponsored. Their skill and sportsmanship is second to none. I wish all the former team members the best, and hope to see them again soon - on a river or in a casting competition, like this year's SOR.

(I was surprised to learn that the Carron team had been disbanded by the company's owner some time last year.)

This answers a lot of questions for me, I am a little more than surprised try shocked, very sad news indeed, now I know why I can't get hold of certain team members in the UK.
I was part of the team and it would have been nice of them to at least say a simple thank you for my efforts it isn't too difficult just plain manners, maybe even make some sort of announcement on their website, clearly the team was their only effective marketing tool.
The guys and girls they had on their team had a wealth of experience , were super talented and very helpful ,a sheer pleasure to be around and very popular, they made many people converts to the brand. I wish my former team mates all the best and sincerely hope to see them all again competing in the future, hopefully in Sanfrancisco.

This is news like a bomb. Carron is a unique team of team!!! She looked up to the sky Super throws the Spey. A unique design in the lines and rods plus search progressive Technics of throws have shown all the bar which we see the world. James Chalmers a unique man, a coach, an athlete, a designer .... His friends Gerard Downey, Ruairi Costello, Andrew Toft,Gordon Armstrong is a space not real people, athletes, friends who set many world records. I hope we all meet and soon the world will know the news from top officials. A pitty that such events have occurred. But everyone in the world is changing, nothing stands still. Perhaps there will soon be another opening in the Spey technique. See you soon.
