Spey Gathering

Just a Heads Up

Peter Humphreys, 2HCI Guideline Pro Staff, and Bob Braendle from Great Lakes Flyfishing [Sponsor] from Rockford, Michigan, are going to hold a Speycasting class on Friday June the 5th. See Great Lakes Flyfishing Website for more info.

So I thought it would be good to have a Spey Gathering on Saturday, the 6th of June. It will be held on the Muskegon at Henning Park in Newaygo. This Gathering will have both Casting and Fishing Demos, but the main emphasis is going to be on fishing, both from a boat and walk and wade. So far we have Will Turek who has kindly offered his expertise on casting and fishing with the Switch Rod.

Also we will be doing classes on the very basics, Lines, knots, making loops, sinking tips (and more) and what it takes to actually catch a fish. We are in the very early stages of planning this, so mark your Calendars for
June 5 & 6!

Another open house.....

Doug and Bob,

I have taken Friday June 5th off work, so my house will be open to anyone needing to stay in the area from Thursday evening June 4th thru Sunday June 7th.

Everyone is welcome to crash here free of charge as always.

Don't forget to bring your Trout rods as this is prime time for Gray Drakes in the evening...... Best dry fly fishing the Muskegon has to offer!

Let me know whatever else I can do to help make this event a success.

Hi All,
The June gathering sounds great. unfortunately,I will be out of town that weekend,(It's tarpon time). However, I am trying to get off work to make the end of March event. I will need some help then testing a few new rods.

Be Responsible, have all your Steelhead speyed

Same problem here, although my two weeks of tarpon fishing are in May. I'll be in Cape Cod chasing stripers during the June event (mostly with a double-handed surf rod.) I do, however, plan on being in Henning the entire week of the Mojo gathering. I'll stop by Friday and/or Saturday to say hello.
