Red Shed Spey Clave

FYI from Poppy on the clave this year. Always a good time with great vendors, presenters and Mrs. Red Shed’s cookies.

Taken from a FB post from Poppy...

The Steelhead run in the Clearwater is very late this year or may be just about non existent.

After much agonizing by myself, Mrs. RedShed, the Red Shed Fly Shop family and friends we have decided to hold the event again this year. There has been no comment from IDFG as to this years run or lack thereof, nor whether they will close the season early. The season may very well be closed by the time the spey gathering date rolls around, but we will be in the Lenore rest stop picnic area on Sept 28, 2019 with some tackle reps, some demo casters, lunch, door prizes, and Mrs. RedShed's cookies.

There are still a lot of details missing on the demo caster page and the tackle rep page. I hope to have the rest of the info added this week.

Big props to Poppy for recommending wakers and no hook points. I was considering not fishing at all this year, but I think that's a good compromise. Sad, sad, sad state of affairs.

Might bring the lake boat over and chase some smallies.

He is as classy as they come. Newcomers to this site should look for his old posts when they have questions, he probably helped others with the same challenge in the past. Great thing about this clave is that the presenters are all available during the morning when you have questions, and all of them are down-to-earth and willing to help. They are also the best of the best in two-hand casting.

That’s a fantastic idea. Have thought about doing the same in previous years. Maybe this is the year...

I'm certainly a big fan of the Shed, Poppy and Dale. Best fly shop around IMO. Judging by how much money I manage to spend on fancy feathers and AJ hooks between August and November, I'd say they're fans of mine too. Lol!

I'm not sure if I'll make it over for the Clave but I'll be there the weekend before, as it looks now. Keep hearing it's good up there and now I got a lake boat! Hitting Pend Oreille next weekend. Bass are the biggest part of my steelhead grieving process. Better than staying home!

I’d thought about Dworshak during summer months as a family trip. If headed over to swing in Sept I might consider dragging the boat over to do a day or two on the reservoir. I’ve towed my drift boat over several times and have yet to put it in the river...so it stays home now.

Best Spey shop in the world and best customer service people in the industry. They will make the Clave a great event even if the fish do not show up. Urge anyone to attend who can make it. The COOKIEs are worth the trip!!

Not sure how many people realize this but there is a pretty nice trout population in the Clearwater as well. I've been out swinging a big stick at a popular run in the lower river at dusk and had 18"+ trout slurping emergers out of the film 10' away. I will definitely be breaking out my Poppy Cane after the clave this year!!!

Everybody should make it to this clave at least once. Great event, great people, great river. If people don't get out of their chairs and start supporting events like this, and Sandy, they won't be around much longer and it will be a huge loss for this community. Even if the fish numbers are down this clave is still great fun in it's own right, well worth the effort of going.

I see you're a shvingger too!
