Hi Spey Clave People,
I have secured Group Area "A" for May 5 & 6, Saturday & Sunday.
Metro would like to partner with the Spey Clave and turn it into an annual event.
Any thoughts on what form this event should take?
I can work to attract tackle companies etc.
Who would like to work with me?
Fish long & prosper,

Please count me in on any help you can use a hand with...your involvement will certainly make or break the event...nice job! Here's my 2 cents on the forum for the spey clave...An emphasis on teaching and sharing new spey casting and fishing techniques..I would really enjoy demonstrating the "spiral single" for anyone interested.....perhaps some fly tying, share some fishing secrets and tell some lies....and swill a beer with some new friends....I for one will be bringing several Scott demo rods to play with, my own sage, hardy, norwich, loomis rods, and hopefully a couple of Bubbas' SA proto lines for people to beat the water to a froth with! I for one am pretty "Stoked" to meet everyone, so please don't hesitate to let me know how i can be of assistance....

Bless you my son! :>) Your contibution to this event will be instramental in making a good time, a great time. I'm down in So. Oregon so don't know what I can directly contribute but let me know!
Quickie question tho; whose 'metro?'

I appreciate everyone's ideas and comments. Since there never has been a Sandy River Spey Clave before, it will be interesting to see what form it will take. As far as I'm concerned, Steve pretty much summed up the program. This should be a place where all parties can learn as well as teach. Everyone's special skills will be welomed to the mix.
I have invited several tackle reps. I have told them that there is no cost for display, nor any obligation. If they come they are welcome. If they don't we will understand. I expect several will attend.
As far as I am concerned representatives from other fly shops are also welcome. The Sandy River Spey Clave should be neutral ground.
Metro is the Government Agency that manages Oxbow Park. They are powerful and will be a good partner.
What I would like to see is several of the original proponants to step forward and meet to discuss with myself and Jim Lind, the Oxbow Park manager, some of the details that will make this get together a great adventure for all attendees.

Since I am local (Estacada), I can give you a hand if you need it. E-mail me when you have orders - I will obey.

I am also relatively local (Salem area) and offer my help as well.
It sounds as though this thing is getting rather larger than any of us anticipated and the casual coordination we have used up to now will be inadequate.
Where do we go from here?

"What we have here is a failure to communicate..." Great line from a great movie. Yes we're building but this is just what we need as a group, as loosly as we may be configured.
Support Mark (here and with your wallets); from small acorns do mighty Oaks grow.

When and where do you want to have the meeting you have proposed for discussing Spey-clave details?
|Originator: Mark Bachmann||Date: 4/11/2001 11:43 PM|
Hi Spey Clave People,
I will be happy to provide a meeting place at our new store and will be happy to buy lunch for who ever wishes to attend an organizational meeting. The dates that work best for me are April 17, 18, 19. These are all week days. April 18 would be easiest for me.
What I have done so far is secure a covered meeting/display area for May 5-6.
I have also contacted several tackle reps and invited them to bring demo rigs. Some will be able to attend. Others are already committed to other things.
Several people from the discussion group have offered to help.
It is probably time for us to get in a huddle and sort things out.
I will be waiting for your responce.
|Originator: longhackle||Date: 4/12/2001 4:36 AM|
I can make it to an organizational meeting on either April 17 or 18. Would 10:00 am be a good time of day to meet?
Mark, will Jim Lind be able to attend? Also, we have a fair idea haw many folks will show up from this discussion group, but you mentioned in an earlier post that this "Spey Clave" was generating a lot of interest among your clientel/newsletter subscribers. Any idea how many bodies that may add to the outing?
As for me, spey casting is the thing I am most intereted in since it is new to me and (I am really pumped about the prospect of a "Spiral Single" casting lesson from Steve) but I like lastcaststeve's idea for sharing fly tying and fishing secrets as well (I have seen a few of Crusty's fly creations--very nice--and would be interested in seeing more). Are ther others who are willing to show favorite flies?
Fishing sekrits are always welcome in my camp--and lies, what fun would there be without 'em?
Other items of interest?
Also, I'm wondering if any of our discussion group from the north will be coming. How about it Scott K, Kush, Dana . . . ?

I couldn't get up there before about 5 pm on a weekday, but I'll be glad to help, and Laura and I'll see you this next weekend at the round table. Regards
|Originator: Mark Bachmann||Date: 4/17/2001 5:12 PM|
I just found out that I forgot to write a guide trip on my calendar.
I will not be available for a Sandy Spey Clave meeting on April 18 (sorry).
Thanks for your understanding.

i think however it would be a good idea to have a meeting with a few local people to develop some sort of schedual parts of Saturday and Sunday it seems like an evening or weekend would be best. What would work best for people? Or should we do it with an online chat???
|Originator: Bill K||Date: 4/22/2001 11:57 PM|
I might be able to participate in a planning session the week before the event, but not this coming week. I'll watch to see what/when/how people decide to get together for whatever planning is useful. Also, I will be prepared to tie some if people are interested in some tying sessions. I'm a very good (but not world-class) fly tyer, so I can contribute there much better than I can with casting, where I am quite mediocre.
|Originator: Mark Bachmann||Date: 4/23/2001 2:37 PM|
Dear Spey People,
I will be gone most of this week.
It's doubtful that a meeting can be arranged before the Spey Clave.
That is probably alright.
I think the thing will come off just fine.
See you there.
