Boston and New England area event planning

Hi all,

I wonder if there are enough interest in the Boston and New England area to hold a spey casting event?

I have been communicating with Jim Valle (MCI, THCI) lately and we thought it might be a good idea to host a casting clave with him in 2012 Spring-Summer. I was just wondering if there is enough interest here in SP. feel free to PM me or contact Jim. webiste http://flycastingmasters.com/jimv.html

Thanks!!

Mark

Yes, a New England spey clave would be great.

I have several people in CT who would attend.

Regards,
FK

thanks for the feedback!

That would be wonderful!! Ladies and Gentlemen

Fred (Fkrow), Jerry and I had a brief chat about the gathering last week. It seems we will have supports from the NE reps and the local FF club! Thanks Fk for making it so smooth! I will keep it updated. The event should take place around May.

I'd be in if it was in ME, MA, or NH and it wasn't focused strictly on overhead casting. I'd love to try some of the rods and lines I don't own and learn more about Skagit and Scandi casting. Looking forward to it!

Thanks for the responses!

Very cool! Thanks for the responses gentlemen!

We are not going to focus on overhead cast... instead we will be focusing on the river swing fishing (Atlantic salmon fishing). Scandi, Skagit and traditional long line.

I hope FK can chip in and give us more information, so far we should have products from several companies to try out...

The location is preferable on the Farmington river, New Hartford, CT due to several legit reasons.
