Like to thank all those who helped make the bean Park Spey Clave a success, including Jack Cook of the Irish Angler
who journeyed out Carnation, Washington with an armload of Guideline and Scierra rods for us to play with, Rick Whorwood and Neil Houlding for their casting demos, Bob Mackenzie for supplying the Sage rods, Grindstone Angling for supplying CNDs, and With A Fly shop for sending out a Grey and a Hardy rod to complete the set. Also like to thank the other stores who helped in the promotion of the event.
We had a very good turnout despite the grim weather forecast that no doubt encouraged some to stay home. Everyone hung in there despite the thunder, lightning, and the downpour, which threatened to turn the park into a lake. We haven’t had any appreciable rain for weeks, so the weatherman decides to make up for it on clave day! Neil’s big blue tarp saved some from a complete soaking and allowed the demos to proceed.
I’ll be putting up some photos over the next day or so and if you have any you wish to submit, please email them to me at pcharles at mountaincable.net.
Speaking of rain, somebody left a Simms XL rain shell behind so contact me if it’s yours and I’ll get it to you.
