East/Midwest Skagit interest?

The three Skagiteers - Mike McCune, Scott O, and myself - are contemplating a short "tour" next May of the East/Midwest area of the States. The goal for us would be to check out the level of interest for Skagit casting AND to experience some new places/rivers/fisheries. Our preliminary thoughts at this time are conducting demos/classes/instruction on two consecutive weekends at two differing locations - one that would cater to the Wisconsin/Illinois/Michigan area, and one that would be central to an Ohio/New York contingent - most likely occurring in the time frame of May 1st through May 16th. Thoughts?!

Being Selfish

For once I must agree with J.D. . Your presence would be missed at the Sandy River Spey Clave. The three of you represent a wealth of knowledge that will be missed.

Question How much

Single Malt do we have to put up to keep these guys here for the Sandy Clave?

FWIW the Salmon River in New York has hosted claves and seems to give people from New England and others a shot at attending. Western NY is just that much farther for many. I'm selfish here as well being only three hours away. I'm sure you would be receive a warm audience wherever you decide to set up.

I'd travel to see you.

It's growing in West Michigan, and the Muskegon would be a good site.
Seems to me Riveraddict hails from here, and I've studied pretty closely for a long time. I'd drive to meet up with you guys.

I would definitely be interested . You may want to reach out to Drew at Tight Lines ( board sponsor) He may be able to help you draw up some intrest on something like this in the north east.

Very cool idea. I think you would have a pretty good turnout in Michigan. I would definately attend.

If one is interested in skagji casting...

it's very worthwhile to travel a great distance to see these guys in action. All three are amazing casters and have a lot of great info to share.

How you get the line out and fishing is personal preference so as long as it works and is easy no one should care but the caster. MSB

Salmon River NY

Got to love that.The Salmon is a great place for just such an event.Long rods have been growing at a fast clip here.Ive been at it about a year and a half and have seen the number grow in that short of time.Cars in the lots today from every state north of Virginia. Was on the river for 10 hrs today!!I'm sure many would not think twice about the trip in the "off" season.

The salmon river would be a great place. The river may even have some steelhead left in it that time of year.

Thumbs up

We would love to have you guys out this way for sure. If you could delay your trip until June 20th, you can hit our Clave on the Salmon River. But no matter what the date, I can guarantee that your classes will be filled before you pack the truck for the long trip out East!

That would make one hell of a weekend Zack!

With the hollow cries of a loon echoing off the mountains,the mist rises from the water like a thousand ghostly spirits freed at last of their earthly torments.It is here that my life falls into focus.

I don't mean to highjack this thread but in my humble opinion I think the spey nation clave would be more successful if not held on fathers day.
