Spey Dayz Hancock NY

Hi All,
I just found out there is a Spey gathering in Hancock NY August 11 and 12. The facebook page about it is https://www.facebook.com/events/607685502957977/

I am new to spey and thought this might be a way to learn some things.

Anyone have experience with this type of event? Is it worth the trip?

Anyone from the forum planning to go?

Bill

Bill if you are new to spey fishing these events are definitely worth attending. You can pick up a tremendous amount of information that will help you get into the sport. Usually they have tackle manufacturers there that have all their spey rods & lines that you can test out and many experts that can answer any of your questions.

Been hoping for a spey gathering on the Delaware...I'll be attending both days, hoping it will be huge success and turn into an annual event.

Thank you for sharing that. Spey Nation is regrouping/refocusing their efforts and event this year; and I was looking for anything kinda close to check out.

ETA The few that I've attended have been decent (not this event specifically) and it looks like they have some solid sponsors. At the very least; you will learn something...

I should be there Saturday. Keeping an eye on the flows may get up there 0 dark 30 to swing some streamers.

Probably will not drive up - high water and ecological disaster with train wreck will prohibit fishing.

I took the ride up today,even with the rivers being high and muddy. This event was well organized and a wealth of information was shared. I hope to see it as an annual event on the upper Delaware
