Clearwater Spey Gathering #6...

Mrs RedShed and I would like to invite you all to the 6th Clearwater, Idaho spey gathering.

The date for 2010 will be Sept 25. The event will again be held at the Lenore rest area and the format will be the same with a couple of changes in the demonstrators.

We are looking forward to seeing everyone!

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

#6???

Poppy, it is hard to believe it is up to #6 already. I have it on my calendar. My wife should be able to come with me this year. Is there anything we can do to help?

Well Poppy,

While I'd love to make this years Clave, but I'm thinking that if I postpone the trip by a week or two, the numbers will be a little higher & temps a little cooler.

Ima fixin' to bag me a biggun' this year and that is #2 on my list for twenty-ten!

Alanzo,

You got to go who will I camp with then?

I to would love to bag a big one as well, come to think about it would love to catch a fish on the CW.

We need to talk about this and figure out when everyone is going.

Let's chat later.

Greg, I heard that one of the new events was going to be spey casting from a ladder.... you had better practice

I don't know if I can make the trek there this year, but I will be at the 2011 one (I won't need to be back to work then )

Redneck-O-Rama...

The one thing the Redneck-O-Rama participants don't need any practice with is talkin trash. In that department they are some of the world's best.

Last year none of them would setup their BIG guns cause they were all jonesin to go fishing, at least that was the excuse. This year if that happens I will have my own special setup for them to use when casting for the cookies.

Also last year I heard some whinning about using the reptile cast. It is a go as far as I'm concerned. BE READY!

Past that the rules are below:

GAME: “Far Reach” Open to those who cast 105’ and farther
Equipment: Rod, true fishing rods no longer than 15’ 1” feet;

Line: all parts of the line head must be floating, no portion larger than .109 inches in diameter and Head must be a minimum of 25 feet in length;

Leader: at least nine feet but no longer than 20 feet; Shooting line: no smaller than .020 average monofilament may be used;

Rules note from Poppy: I have a micrometer, but I have no plans to use it. If you want to be a cheater so be it. If you are cheating you will not be participating again, no exceptions. We are all big boys and girls. If you can not follow the rules without being policed please stay away. This event is not held in a concrete pool. It is held on the river and the course is what it is. Deal with it. I do not have time to deal with whiners and inane nitpickers. This event is like street racing. Talk your thrash, make your casts and let the chips fall where they may.

Official fly to be provided by NSSC
Wading depth: dependent on river depth at time of competition

PLEASE NOTE: This deal is open to ALL casters of all abilities and all age groups. I have places for those that can't cast 105' and EVERYONE is welcome.

Steelhead36, I think you will find the Clearwater spey gathering well worth your trip North.

There will be lots of jedi and plenty of help with your casting. There is also most if not all of the two handle tackle reps on hand with the latest and the greatest in rods, reels, lines, and a lot of other things connected to chasing anadromous fish.

If you leave hungry it is your own fault cause Mrs RedShed and her group of helpers puts on a pretty good feed.

Last but not least my grandkids Mariah and Brandon draw names for door prizes all day long. Last year we gave away 2 rods, a spey reel, several lines, magnetic rod racks, a Wheatley swing leaf box, a Sharpes wading staff, 2 pairs of waders, some fly assortments, and several T-shirts.
