Season's Greetings

Hello,

I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, good health and great fishing...may your lines be tight !!

Spey-O-Rama 2010, April 9,10,11 is not far away and I look forward to seeing some of you in SF.

Great news is that 5 from Carron team will compete: Gordon Armstrong, Ruairi Costello, James Chalmers, Andrew Toft and Gerard Downey. They are looking to break the 2009 record so the men's competition will be really exciting! Plus we have confirmation so far from Brian, Simon Hsieh, Simon Gawesworth, Frank Chen, Hiroshi Yazaki.

As for the women's division, Takako from Japan, Siv-Anita from Norway both said they plan to come and I am just waiting for confirmation. Of course, Whitney and myself will compete too, and I am waiting to hear from the other ladies. From the quality of casting in 2009, I am expecting the women's record to be broken too in 2010.

I am really thrilled to see the standard of casting being raised to new levels each year, which says a lot about the competitors and the rod/line manufacturers, all striving for the best !

The competition rules will remain the same as 2009 and will be posted soon.

If you have decided you will be coming to Spey-O-Rama please let me know as soon as possible, especially if you would like to do any demos, clinics or fly fishing presentations at Spey-O-Rama so we can schedule them and post the agenda early. Please email: [email protected]

Happy holidays and Best Wishes,
Donna

I've been really trying to find an accomodation as much as possible close to SOR.
Just... if possible - let me know about that.
And we'll come!

Spey O rama

Hi Bob and Donna, Looking forward to Spey-O-Rama this year. The whole family will be there. I think Tegan might be starting her own division this year. She's pretty gunho!

Cheers, Mia

Mia,

Thank you very much for confirming that your whole family will be at Spey-O-Rama, we really look forward to seeing you all! I am sure Tegan is much taller this year, so maybe she can try to make some casts soon ? You will have to get her casting early!

Best regards,
Donna
