Thumbs up 3rd Annual Event For Cancer looks to be Promising in Massachusetts

As the spring steelhead and trout season is about to begin, many items and services are falling into place for the 3rd annual Deerfield River Spey Day.
This year we have added single handed flishing as well to go along with a cast of two handers on the water. Well know fly fishing youth instructor, John Troiano will be on the water offering a day of learning and enjoyment. Again this year, Pat Garner will not only talk bamboo, but will demonstrate on the water bamboo fly rod casting and fishing.
My good friend Keith, if he is able to be in the states for that time, has also offered his time for two-handed. I am waiting on a couple more two handers, when they are able to commit for the event, I will post it up as well.

Join us for the day that benefits cancer survivors and Reel Recovery.

No offense...

but I live in Washington and fish the Skagit, Hoh, Sauk, etc. I've also fished the Deerfield in Mass. Not sure where a spey rod would be necessary to fish the Deerfield. Beautiful river, but not "spey-worthy" from what I've seen.

Kootkoot52. What sections of the Deerfield did you fish? This is a perfect spot to for the clave and support the cause at hand. Your response is concerning.

Why is it that posts that start with "No Offense" usually are offensive?

Question

Unreal!!!

KK you are clueless.Walt puts endless hours into this of his own time and money to help some poor bastard that is in recovery,or not,from a s#$!! ass disease and all you come up with is the Deerfield is not "spey-worthy"

Hate to sound redundant but CLUELESS is are polite as I can get.

Walt,Keep up the good work!!!!!!!!I hope it works out that we can get there for the day.

Scott Anderson

PS. I will bring a couple of SPEY rods and the SWITCH if it works out.God I hope I'm worthy of it.

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.

KK, there are very few rivers where a "spey" is "necessary," but they sure are fun!

Spey 1, good luck with the clave. That's a beautiful area(I lived in the area when I was young), I wish I could join you all.

Have you seen it in high water, this river offers many options for longer casts, drifted flies and swinging wets. Spey is great alternative when you travel out here and have an unexpected white water release.

thanks for the positive feed back. been here on the Deerfield all my life and before spey, I always had fish that teased me just out of reach. Now it's fun and relaxing to know that in mostly all conditions, the Deerfield Riiver can be fished effectively either by single or two handed casting.

Deerfield Spey Day

I would like to thank Walt Geryk for organizing the fine Spey Day event on the Deerfield River (Saturday 4 May, 2011). Spey Day was a fund raiser for the Reel Recovery to help victims of cancer.

Phil Krista was a great instuctor in teaching traditional spey casting.

Thanks again, Walt, and I hope you will have a similar event next year.
