We are thinking about holding a Spey Clave North on the Thompson in August. While there aren't any steelhead around in August, it might give everyone who fishes Canadian waters in the fall an opportunity to gather and celebrate the Tao of Spey before rushing off to the Skeena system. I'd like to carry on the same informal, relaxed approach of the Sandy Claves, as well as have a few scheduled events. I realize a few of us will be on the Dean, but August seems to make the most sense.
Give me your thoughts on this.

Hi Dana: Aug on the Thompson should be alright. I
think there should be red springs in the river I think its open 3 days per
week on the weekends. We could all learn to cast those 800 grain

ah yes, the chinook fishery--almost forgot about that! What is the lower limit of the fishing boundary? Will we have enough water below to hold clinics and demos? I was thinking we could make the Grease Hole (Cal Woods Campground) a primary gathering point but can't recall if the chinook fishery is happening in that area. I thought we could do river right stuff at the Scallops above Murray Creek.

thoughts on Spey Clave "Happenings":
casting demos and clinics (informal ones whenever, a few formal ones scheduled during the clave)
fly tying: maybe we could get a tube fly demo and a classic Atlantic salmon demo?
custom line design

Would a complete novice be welcome to attend?I recently bought my first spey rod and have not yet learn to cast.I can't make the March lessons at M&Y so I'll probably take them in Sept(or whenever they are held next).I was going to buy the Derek Brown vidio to at least give me some understanding till then.I would love to attend and observe more experienced anglers up close and meet some of the members here for the future.I would probably be too embarrased to do much casting but I am very eager to learn and watch demos.I can always go fishing but there are not many oportunities to meet experienced spey anglers for me as I live in Penticton.I would sure welcome some good pointers.Thanks.

A clave is open to one and all and is a great opportunity to meet kindred spirits and get some free pointers, so yes you are more than welcome, F&F! As a new caster what sort of info and other stuff would you like to see at the clave?

Hi Dana: Without checking DFO It is my recollection
that the chinook area ran from the mouth of the Nicola down to the highway 1
bridge. Jacks are legal throughout,and fishing was open for adult fish
three days per week Sat to Mon from 6 am to 6 pm.
