Spey Combo Raffle

Yesterday I picked up the tickets for the Spey Combo Raffle. I will also be delivering these to various fly/tackle shops that have agreed to sell them for us. We have 2 very sweet Spey Combos for this draw that have been generously donated by Loop Canada & Sage Fly Rods/Bob McKenzie Agencies. I would like to say thanks to both companies as well as to the many shops that have agreed to sell tickets for us for this raffle. It is with their help and support that our Spey Clave has continued to improve and grow. There is a copy of one of the tickets here a swell.
Cheers & thanks Randy Wilson (Clave Organizer)

Presenters:

Presenters for this year are Dec Hogan, Courtney Ogilvie, Michael Mauri, Walt Geryk and Tyler Dunsmore. The presentations will be different each day of the Clave. All the more reason to come back on the Sunday. The number of presenters has been reduced this year in order to provide more time for people to try out gear as well as get advice and help.



Raffles:

We have added a Spey combo raffle this year. We have 2 Spey rod and reel combos for this raffle.One is winner's choice oof a Sage Spey rod,rel and Rio line valued at $2,000.00 and the other is a Loop Spey rod and reel combo donated by Loop Canada.



Tickets for this raffle are available from several local fly/tackle shops. A form can also be printed off from the friends of the grand River web site for anyone wishing to purchase tickets throught the mail.



At present we have about $3,500.00 in prize donatiosn for the bucket raffle.We expect to have more donations before the Clave. If anyone has a donation for the raffle please contact me with the details. Just a reminder that all proceeds from the Clave raffles go directly back to The Friends of the Grand River who sponsor the event to help support their on goin work to benefit the Grand River.



We are looking forward to seeing everyone at the Clave.

Cheers & thanks Randy Wilson (Clave Organizer)

Clave Tyers:\
We have 4 very talented tyers for the Clave that will be on hand tying some of their favorite steelhead patterns both days of the Clave in the event tent. Be sure to stop by and feel free to ask questions of them on fly tying. We have Steve Wolcott from Natural Sports and Jin Woo Lee aka Whiskey Jin who have tied for us at the Clave for the last few years. We have 2 new additions with Rob & Tama Clarke of Clarke's Custom Flies. You will see everything from traditional to intruder patterns being tied. Details on the tyers is available on the Clave web site under the tying section...Cheers Randy

For those who don't know, Randy had a stroke on Thursday night and is in the hospital. As I understand it, he can't speak and has lost the use of one side of his body. Here's wishing him a complete and speedy recovery.
