Spey Nation III June 19, 2010

Email update from Spey Nation.




To Receive email updates, send an email to [email protected]

Hello Spey Nation 2009 Goers!

Happy New Year! I hope your summer and fall seasons were a success and that the runs are strong in all your river systems. Thank you once again for traveling to Spey Nation last June. As you probably know, Spey Nation has been a topic of excitement on our river again this year and with the amount of email inquiries I have been getting, its time I sent this out to you.

Wed like to invite you to Spey Nation III, June 19, 2010. Once again, we will gather on the shores of the Salmon River in Pineville, NY to celebrate the culture of 2 handed rods and the fish that we chase. Despite some forecasted nasty weather, over 250 of you showed up to celebrate with us. This year promises to be bigger and better!

We will once again be hosting a BBQ, raffles and some surprises. Companies like Beulah, Burkheimer, Scott, Echo, Orvis, and Wild Water Fly Rods have all committed to being there already and we will be working some of the shows in the area to ensure this will be the best Spey Nation gathering yet. If you are attending any of the Fly Fishing Shows and would like to see a company attend our event, by all means, mention us and point them to www.speynation.com!

To see highlights from Spey Nation 2008, 2009 and keep updated about 2010 please go to www.speynation.com.


We hope to see everyone in June,

I had a great time last year, and it's great to see it's going to happen again this year too.

I'm even going to bring my waders this time.

This is your official (If my counting is correct) 124 day update coming to you live from frozen upstate, NY. Even though our attempt to make steelheading the official Winter Olympic Sport of the Vancouver games is falling short, we still are somehow managing to put together the greatest Spey Nation Event yet.

Come celebrate the emerging 2-handed rod culture in the Great Lakes Fishery on Saturday June 19, 2010. Spey Nation offers the unique opportunity for enthusiasts and manufacturers to gather in a streamside setting. The Location is still the Pineville Boat Launch on the Salmon River in Pineville, NY.

Spey Nation features a full BBQ, raffles, “On the water” demonstrations, and interaction with some of the biggest names in 2 handed casting from the East and West Coasts. Mixing styles, knowledge, and backgrounds, Great Lakes anglers finally have the opportunity to learn Traditional Spey, Scandinavian, and Skagit techniques from the experts, try specialized equipment on the water and talk with other fishermen in an atmosphere dedicated exclusively to 2-handed casting while enjoying a burger and a brew.

Confirmed companies include Scott, Echo, Airflo, Wild Water Fly Rods, Hardy/Greys, CND, CF Burkheimer, Guideline, Buelah, The Spey Company, Temple Forks Outfitters, JP Ross, and Orvis. Representatives from each of these companies will be on hand let you know the latest and greatest from the 2 handed world.

There will be opportunities to take formal lessons on the Sunday after Spey Nation. Please visit our website for the announcement on those and who will be appearing during the event giving demonstrations

Admission is free. The BBQ is free; Spey Nation is funded completely by generous donations to our raffles. All “Profit” is donated to grass routes Atlantic Salmon and Steelhead conservation projects in our watershed.

Thank you,

Live from rapidly melting upstate, NY…It’s your Spey Nation Update! March is a time of transition for our fishery and Spey Nation. We have made it into the new millennium. We are now on facebook! Search Spey Nation and you can add pictures from our past 2 events, post conservation concerns and even RSVP to the June 19th gathering. We are also expanding or content on www.speynation.com to include some basic information on spey fishing with the ultimate goal of telling the unique story of spey fishing in the northeast. Bear with us on the details for a while but we welcome comments and suggestions to help us expand the new section.

1.) The shirt is bad-ass. Looks like the grim reaper.
2.) Toying around with the idea of making the trek.

If anyone else from IL, IN, WI, MI is also flirting with the thought, maybe we could pair up to save ga$ and sleep deprivation.
