Simon Gawesworth Spey School

We are offering a limited one day Spey School with Simon Gawesworth on Sunday September 30, 2012. This is the Sunday following Spey Fest. Tuition is $300 and the enrollment is limited to 6 students. Please contact us at 616-866-6060 to reserve your spot. 50% deposit is required to hold your place, don't delay as this is bound to sell out fast. There will be plenty of one on one time, so students of all abilities are welcomed. CLASS IS FULL, we will keep a short waiting list.

I will be there again this year with some cane rods. If you are curious about cane switch/spey rods stop by and give one a try.

Kinda Highjacking this post but thought it would be a good start.

Is anyone interested in going in half for a full day float with Feenstra? I was thinking maybe Nov 15th or one day that following weekend. Let me know. I already have a call into him and left him a message.

Thanks,

Corey
