I haven't had a chance to join in on this aspect of the sport. I can tell you personally that Ron Lauzon is a great instructor, caster, and friend.
He goes to the same church as I do and has tought at a few of our men's retreats. I learned a lot in the limited time I got to have his help.
Mark Bachmann (owner of the shop and web site above) is also a first rate fellow. I have recently been frequenting his store almost weekly.
Teaching tying classes and all---not at the store however... although he has offered for us to use his class room. We get together late in the evening (after hours) and I don't want to inconvenience him...He'd do it, I just don't want to do it to him...
Sometimes I buy stuff, sometimes simply talk or ask questions, he's always helpful. You'll like him. One of the sponsors here too.......check out the store if you have not done so.
Oh and by the way, I don't work for him, just think he's a heck of a guy, so I'm willing to toot his horn.
If I possibly can, I'll be attending my first CLAVE this year. Never spey cast. Sounds like a good time. Maybe I'll win a spey rod so I can afford to give it a go........Trez:hehe:
I'm tired and rambling.... Guess I should say good night Take care
Edit----Talked to Mark again today, says he will open the shop for our free tying (after hours) classes and help with supplies. Will talk with my group, but it looks like Mark's going to do some more sponsoring.
Nice guy--------Get to know him.
