Speaking of Travis. Some sort of a small informal distance casting competition would be fun.

That was the presentation that I remember most vividly from last year's clave. Of course I've made no attempt to tailor one of my lines, but I have looked for the 'wobble' once in awhile.

I think it would be interesting to see a presentation dedicated to line management options and techniques: pros and cons of loops vs. coils, top hand vs. bottom, etc.

I don't imagine that there will be much Fly Tying going on during the actual event, but is anyone going to do any tying in the evenings around the camp sites?

Would be pretty cool to set up a picknick table or two and crack out some flies.

Just a thought.

That would be great to see some lines getting made. Its somthing I've been thinking about trying.

I would also like to see some reel manufacturers there such as Speyco, Saracione etc.

As for custom lines, if Steve Gotshall is there, you will. His custom lines are true magic. No disrespect intended to line's out of a box, but his lines are rod/caster specific. Casting Magic ...... 'Just Trust' me on this one.

SpeyCo reels? They're bullet proof. Tim manufacturer's each by hand to your needs/spec's. At a price you can afford.

Saracione's? Beauty/Function/why you slid that on your reel seat? Fellow knows what he's about. I'd pay money to sit (quite Mouse) at a table as these three talked about ... ship, what-ever?

I would love to see Marty Howard tying some flies would be huge hit with everyone. My son would really like to see Dec Hogan,Ed Ward,Scott Howell and Goran Anderssen casting some lines and sharing their wisdom on the River.
Hope to see them! This is gonna be my first time attending the Sandy Spey Clave.

TBH, I would hate to singularly vote for one specific person. These are all clearly greats, masters of the sport. I am thankful to each and everyone of them for taking the time and energy to come out and give back. Very cool. This is just my take; but a "popularity contest" of sorts seems kind of out of place? At any rate, I'm stoked to be on my way there and would be eager to get a little touch of knowledge from ANY of the good folks who will be there.

Thanks for putting this all together, as for voting... they all get mine!

Question

No Steve Choate on that list??? He's one of the presenters and as an instructor he's pure magic.
