I'll be there also. Going up Thursday after work, and hopefully on the water first thing Friday morning. Can't wait to meet a new crowd of spey fanantics like myself. And of course fish the rapids. First time for me.

I just have to say thanks to Brad for the kind invite, and the great food. I also want to mention that his shop SOO NORTH will have a selection of SpeyCo reels on hand for river testing. So If you are in the area fishing please swing by his shop and give one a spin. This account will be my pleasure in servicing in person and as much as possible I will try and make sure that he has reels on hand to try and take home.

In all this was a very fun weekend ,made a few new friends, hit couple of fish, really is there anything more in life? Looking forward to next year buddy and Thanks so much again. Here was a photo that came my way.

Well i have to say in my opinion Spey Days was a success and its only going to get better,for never having a clave before there was over 50 people who attended ,new casters along with vetran casters got to cast the LOOP Cross S1 series of rods and Speyco had a very nice table of reels on hand.
Spey Days will be an annual event we just arnt sure of the dates for next year yet but it will be in July 2013.
Also if your up in the Soo drop a line if you want to test drive a Loop Cross S1 or a Speyco Reel you may like them so much it will top the bucket list
