there was some great casting today, To get in the final tomorrow you had to average 157' per cast. Congrats to Travis Johnson on his world record cast of 198' with a 15' rod.

Thanks, G.G.A.C.

Congrats to the winner's and all competitor's in 2014 S.O.R. It's been exciting to see the level of competition improve each year. There were more new faces this year as well. Which, I think, bodes well for the future of SOR.
The excitement surrounding the event was palpable. Many thanks to GGACC for hosting a stellar event. Have to again thank Geoff, and crew, for "hitting it out of the park" in 2014. This dusty "wannabe" can't wait for next year.
Salute!
Ed. F.

Final Results for SOR 2014

Competitors and friends,

Here are the final results of this yearís competition. Please forward this email to anyone who might be interested.

The 2014 Jimmy Green Spey-O-Rama, the world championship of Spey casting, was held in San Francisco at the Golden Gate Angling and Casting Club (GGACC) on April 12-13. A record-high 49 competitors participated from nine countries including Australia, Canada, Ireland, Japan, Norway, Russia, Scotland, Ukraine, and US.
Travis Johnson of Tygh Valley, Oregon won the men's overall title with magnificent casting in both the Saturday qualifying and Sunday finals. In Saturday qualifying, Travis set a new world record of 198 ft for the longest-ever spey cast in competition with a 15 ft rod, eclipsing the previous world record of 191 ft set last year by Norway's Geir Hansen. Averaging more than 180 ft per cast, Travis also set a new world record of 721 ft for the total of the four required casts, surpassing the previous world record of 711 ft set last year by Ireland's Gerard Downey. Scotland's James Chalmers and Norway's Tommy Aarkvisla continued their string of excellent finishes in this competition by placing second and third respectively.
Fishing guide and casting instructor Whitney Gould continued her extraordinary casting in this event by winning the women's competition for the fourth time in six years. Oregon's Mia Sheppard, last year's champion, placed second. Marcy Stone, last year's runner up, placed third.
The senior men's division is now in its third year. Sacramento's Doug Duncan won this year's competition with a record total of 610 ft. GGACC regular Frank Chen, last year's champion, placed second. Canadian Tyler Kushnir, the 2012 champion, placed third.
