Anyone attend the Sandy River Spey Clave in the past? I'm thinking of making the long trek  from the North Coast of California and I'm hoping for some candid feedback from those that may have attended the event in years past.

Bad pun I'm sure but if you're a spey rodder you couldn't have more fun with your cloths on if you tried. Well over 100 men and women attended the first Spey Clave. Recommend you go back and pull the old threads on the first one. Looks like number 2 should even be better.
 
As to pollishing your skills some of the worlds best were there and took all the time you needed either on the water or grass to refine your two-hander work. It will be a long drive but several folks came up from California/Southern Oregon so it sounds like car pool time.

It sounds like the Sandy clave was a great event. It would be nice if we could arrange a similar event up here in BC. Perhaps March/April on the Squamish or in the fall, either up north or on the Thompson. Thoughts Dana, Fred others?

Speynut,
 
The Sandy clave was very worthwhile.  I came down with a bad back 2 days prior, and so was unable to spend much time casting, but I still learned quite a bit.  Just to be clear, the Sandy clave was started by participants here, not by manufacturers.  We had amazing support from The Flyfishing Shop in nearby Welches, and the shop brought manufacturers as an addition, not as the primary focus.  The primary focus was interaction between spey nuts.

May be off the mark here but Marks' site is [email protected].
 
He's got the latest word on May, 2002; also asked them (droping the dime for tube fly toys) to update the info.

Thanks to all for the great feedback on the Spey Clave event. You've sold me, I'm heading north. Speynut

Brian, the idea of a Spey Clave North is one Brad Michael & I have batted around a little. A fall clave might be a good idea to balance the spring event on the Sandy. Finding a place and time would be a challenge. September might be a good time, but the Skeena is quite a journey for anyone not already heading up there. The Fraser near Vancouver or the Thompson are options--what about the Squamish /Whistler area at that time of year? A prime consideration is the focus of the event--do people want to get together to compare notes and cast, or is fishing part of the deal? Any other thoughts from the board?

Dana, I'm not sure what happened at the Sandy, but considering it's success I think we should follow that template. Squamish/Whistler in the fall sucks for me as I am up north or on the Thompson. I like your idea about the Fraser but in what season, and where would people camp? I think the concept is great, we just need to work out the details. I am more than willing to help out with whatever possible. Brian

On the Fraser, Island 22 during the sockeye run. Lots of camping right on the river, and some of us could use our boats to ferry people to the better island bars.
