Jimmy Green International Spey-O-Rama 2006

The Golden Gate Angling & Casting Club will present the third annual Spey-O-Rama May 5-7, 2006 at the world renowned casting ponds in Golden Gate Park in San Francisco.

The event is open to the public and admission is free.

The event will center on:

•Casting demonstrations and instruction in all styles of spey casting
•Exhibits and free trials of a huge array of two-hand rods and lines
•An international spey casting competition with the world’s best casters

Dana, a question that I hope is not silly: what exactly is "US long line style" as opposed to modern UK style?

Good Question! I think it is the "Modern Traditional" Style stuff--what Way (Yin) and Steve (Choate) do. The text above is a press release that I have posted to remind folks about the event and encourage them to attend.
