"Day on the River" bamboo rods, hand made reels and icy guides...

A bit last minute, but.... For any anglers in WA who feel like getting out in the bitter cold this sat morning (Dec. 7) I wanted to let guys know that Tim Gelinas from Farlex reels, Mark Shamburg of Confluence rods and reels and myself will all be down on the Snoqualmie R. casting clinic graciously hosted on by Aaron "Speybum" Reimer from River Run Anglers. There will be a selection bamboo rods and hand made reels on hand to demo in addition to the excellent FREE casting lessons provided by the crew from River Run.

The "day on the river" informal gathering runs from 9-12 noon every Saturday am under the bridge in Fall City and has been running for many, many years now. Info and directions can be found on River Run Anglers web page (directions are on the Contact page)

I know it will be cold out... but it is a chance to see and demo some interesting tackle that you just can't find in your local shops, meet a few fellow local anglers and brush up on your casting ..... all while freezing your.... well, you know what off.

Grab a coffee and some mittens and drop by.

Cheers.
James

James,
Wished I could make it to this gathering! With the snow on the roads and life's other interruptions, I'll have to stay closer to my Willamette valley home where the snow continues to pile up and ruin my dry line fishing plans for tommorrow. But....... I will be anxiously watching the mail next week for a certain tubular package that will be on it's way from you!!

Have fun, stay warm, and be safe out there,

Todd

Day

Day on the river.

Parking was full.
These guys are serious about what they build, you could hear and see that. Serious respect for craftsman involvement. Something you don't see much anymore.
