Sandy River Spey Clave 2009 Now 3 Days

A fond good day and happy casting to you all!
The 2009 Sandy River Spey Clave has grown to become a three day event.
This is due primarily to the vision and diligence of Mia Sheppard and Whitney Gould.
They have lined up an all-star cast of female performers to entertain, educate and to enjoy
your personal company at the first-ever women’s day at the Sandy River Spey Clave.
To our knowledge this is the first ever, Spey event with an all female cast.
The date is May 15, Friday…starts at 10:00 A.M. to 3:30 P.M.
Everyone is welcome to attend.
These gals are serious…

No meals will be served during the day Friday because other parts of the Clave will be setting up.
The trailer house and Big Dining/Show Tent (30” by 60”) will be set up on Thursday. The covered area of Group Area “A” will be available to set up Thursday after 3:00 P.M.
Some manufacturers displays will be up for all day display on Friday.
And those that are not will be deemed as sexist.

There is no exchange of cash at this Clave except for non-profits, such as conservation groups and fly fishing clubs. This gives the general public a more objective view of the products on display, and cuts way down on the book keeping with Government Folks. Orders for merchandise exchanged for cash in the future and from another location can be considered totally proper. Brochures and business cards should be freely exchanged. Please mix & mingle.

Friday evening there is going to be a potluck dinner hosted by the Santiam Spey Casters Club. This event will take place at the big tent at Group Area “A”. Beginning 5:00 P.M. and will end after dark. We will make arrangements to get people out of the park until around ten something. After or during the Pot Luck, Mark will attempt to entertain you with PowerPoint presentations chronicalizing some of his & Patty’s fishing adventures.

Basically Saturday & Sunday are formatted after the last three episodes. However, many of the acts are changed and will be seen for the first time here. What does javelin throwing and Spey casting have in common? Come and find out. Is Z better than straight…interesting question? We’ll probably all have a better understanding after this Clave. There will be a lot of fairly new lines to test, and many new rods to test them with.

Prepare to get fed, educated and entertained…for just about free.
Prepare to be immersed into the Spey Brotherhood/Sisterhood.
You’re going to like it.
We all want to see you there!

Fish long & prosper,
Mark, Patty & Gang

Breakfast At the Clave

The North Santiam Spey Casters will host a Pancake/LiL Smokies breakfast Saturday and Sunday Mornings. We will start serving around 7:30 and finish by 9 AM. The club has a NEW bigger grill that puts out GREAT cakes. A full belly is key to learning so join us for some education pills.

My wife and I have been looking forward to this event for many months.

There are a few rods we would like to try on in hopes of adding a new 6 or 7 wt. to our line up. Is there anything I should bring or be prepared for? Do I need to bring waders????

THANKS to everyone (and especially manufactures) that put this event on.

Both of you should bring your waders which will allow you to test cast rods and lines on the water as well as on grass. Wading gear will also allow you to get lots of free casting instruction by some of the best spey casting instructors available. You should be prepared to pay an outrageous fee of $4/car/day Metro Park entrance fee which is the total cost for the clave and the food. You must also be prepared to have a great deal of fun.

We will be there with lots of gear for folks to try. In addition we will be putting on demos of tube fly making and line welding all days long. Drop in and celebrate.
