Muskegon River Spey Gathering
Spey Gathering @ 9:00 AM on Saturday, the 10th of November, 2007, on the Muskegon river at Henning Park in Newaygo, Michigan.
This will be an opportunity to learn from some of the best that Guideline has to offer.
Toni Karuvaara from Guideline Sweden will be demonstrating Underhand Casting and using Spey casts with a single hander and shooting heads.
Jack Cook, representing Guideline North America, will be explaining and demonstrating Guideline products from a West Coast perspective. This will be more of a fishing than a casting demo.
Peter Humphreys, Guideline Pro Staff, FFF THCI/CI, will present a basic spey casting demo, covering fine tuning your casting skills (anchor, D-loop, and applying the 180 degree rule).
Neil Houlding FFF THCI/CI, G. Loomis Pro Staff, will be available to assess your spey outfit and will freely give advice on your rod/reel/line combination and your technique or lack thereof.
Peter Charles, Guideline Pro Staff, will be giving a talk with handouts on fly presentation using shooting heads and full sinking lines.
Ari Leiman from Finland will be demonstrating tying tube and pike flies.
If time allows later in the day, Peter Humphreys and Neil will give a demonstration of fishing and casting from a boat.
If there is the interest we will have an Early Bird spey casting demo on late Friday afternoon at the above location.
Although this is a showcase primarily for Guideline products and staff, this is a free event and any and all brands and manufacturers are more than welcome. Contact Woodlander through this forum for further info.
Spey casting can be injurious to your health, so wear glasses and a hat. Get in and out of the water carefully and wade safely. Please use fluffies or cut off the hook point from your fly.
