The party is starting early !!!
“Breakfasts at the Clave”
Again this year The North Santiam Spey Casters Club will host the “Welcome” booth and prepare pancake breakfasts Saturday and Sunday mornings May 5th and 6th, starting at 7:30am. Cal has built a new grill especially for breakfasts at the Clave. This club provides a great service to the success of the Sandy River Spey Clave. The breakfast a great way to meet a lot of other spey casters. The smoothness and camaraderie of all the volunteers makes this a great experience. Pancakes, Little Smokies, hot coffee are the menue.
Friday Night, May 4th, the North Santiam Spey Casters is hosting a potluck, informal dinner at the Sandy Spey Clave. Cal will be doing a Special Dutch Oven recipe and the rest of us will bring a side dish or dessert. Dinner will be at Group Area "A" where the kitchen will already be set up. You bring food to share, your beverage/s of choice, plate, utensils, appetite, chair and the NSSC and FFS will provide a campfire “atmosphere”. RSVP if you think you will be around. We need to know how many to plan for the meal.
After Dark Entertainment will be provided by Mark Bachmann and Brian O'Keefe with slide & video shows of fly fishing adventures & opportunities.
This celebration might last long after the Oxbow entry gate closes.

Thanks,
Mark

Contest at The Sandy Spey Clave

Win A Winston BIIX Spey Rod
Value $795
Sandy River Spey Clave Spring Chinook Contest
Are Spring Chinooks easy to catch with flies...probably not. Do many anglers fish for them with flies...not many. Have any been caught with flies...yes. Over the past four years there have been enough verified catches to know that if they are targeted, Chinooks can be had in reasonable numbers. And they are dynamite fish on a spey rod. So here's the deal. The angler who catches the first verifiable Spring Chinook with a Spey Rod from either the Sandy or Clackamas Rivers from May 4-6 will win a Winston BIIX 15' 9/10 Spey Rod !!!! And...
He or she will win a lot of prestige !!!
This year the Sandy River Spey Clave is a week early and spring water temperatures, along with the Chinooks are running a little bit late. But, a few Chinooks are being caught by both gear and fly guys. The good thing is that water levels are very good and we are getting a lot of cloud cover days which aid the bite. Besides an brand new $795 fly rod is worth spending a little time on the water for. The contest is open to anyone.
Here are the rules:
All wild fish must be treated gently and released unharmed. Hatchery Chinooks can be retained. The catch must be totally verifiable. The catch must be witnessed by another angler. For that reason, it will be best to fish in pairs or groups. Each fish must be measured for length and girth. Size matters only for the record. The first Chinook landed wins. Each entry must be accompanied with a digital picture which must contain in the background verification of location. Each entry must be imprinted with a time code from the camera. The person taking the winning picture wins a Fishpond Vacuum Flask. Every angler submitting an entry, wins a fly line of their choice; any of the more than 300 lines offered on www.flyfishusa.com .
The rod and vacuum flask will be awarded on May 6, 4:00pm.
Credits will be issued for the fly lines at the same time.

Good Luck,
Mark..............

How do you tell a hatchery chinook from a wild chinook? I take it the regulations state a wild chinook has to be released? I have never gotten my camera to time stamp, any help out in cyberland?

Mark does a heck of a job putting on the Sandy Clave.Anyone aspiring to improve their casting and trying out equipment should attend.I figure that I am comfortably up the curve.However,last year I set a goal to refine my single spey,especially off my right shoulder river right.I spent a day on the oregon coast with Mike McCune.He showed me a detail I had not been doing.I went to Sandy a month + later and the point was driven home by Simon and again by Dec Hogan.Goal accomplished!If you concentrate on small goals and picking up small,specific nuances you can get a lot out of the talent presented.It could be really small .Like concentrating on the way Al Buhr[my goal this year] or Ed Ward hold the rod and twist their hands throughout the cast movement for extra power and control.Or the way Al starts the line one direction and creates air stick ,if you will, to load the rod to go the other direction.Plus it is a great way to see all your friends in one place!Beau

Exclamation Question for you LeRoy.

Oxbow's main gate is usually locked at dark; going to stay open longer this year?(Thinking about Mark's presentation on Friday evening.)

Dead on right Bro!

Picked that bit up a couple of years ago at the 'Clave, and it MADE my casting (distance in particular) 'come alive.' It's amazing how something so simple can have such a huge impact on the end result.

You guys are killing me. I hope to make it back one of these days. I was at the first one, where we expected maybe 25 people to show up and were amazed when 100 did. I made some good friends and look forward to returning one of these years. Y'all have a great time.
