Wish I could be there, as it sounds like a good time. Lots of good folks there to glean some casting mojo from. BTW, Nate some of your tips and tricks have certainly upped the amount of attention I've been getting lately from the steelhead. Even managed to land a few in the last couple outings, if I could just stop the "insta-jerk" hookset I might even start landing a few more

If I were closer I would make a point to not miss this,

It's The Big Stick Clinic,

Well It looks like the list has Grown, and we have some changes. Monte Ward Is going to take Matts Slot. Monte is the US Vision Flyfishing distribuitor and has been Spey fishing forever. Im sure his insite will help us all. Ron has contacted me, and due to unforeseen circumstances Ron can’t make it. He will be truly missed as I was looking forward to seeing him again, and his Rogue River Special Drift Boat up close and personal, but these things always seem to work out as Gary contacted me and told me that Charles Gehr can take Ron’s slot.

Charles specializes in the trout and steelhead fisheries of the Pacific Northwest, the Rockies, and British Columbia. A passionate and experienced angler, he spent five years as a full-time trout and steelhead guide on Oregon’s Deschutes River before joining the Fly Water Team. Prior to his tenure on the Deschutes, Charles lived in Ashland, OR and fished the waters of Southern Oregon and Northern California extensively. Charles is an excellent fly tier, an extremely gifted spey caster and the best informed member of our staff on spey tackle and techniques. A University of Wyoming alumni, Charles also has a deep affection for and knowledge of the vast and varied trout fisheries of the Rockies and the American West. His overriding passion for the outdoors and wild places has lead him to guide white water, rock climbing, and fly fishing, row the Grand Canyon, backpack long sections of the Appalachian Trail, and kayak countless rivers from coast to coast….As per Fly Water Travels Website
So here is the list:

09:00-10:00- Meet and Greet …Coffee—provided by On The Fly Guide Service
10:00-10:30ish- Nate Bailey: of On The Fly Guide Service: Out of the box fly presentations
11:00-11:30ish- Charles Gehr: Anderson Custom Rods, and Flywater Travel
12:00-12:30ish- Donna O’Sullivan: of Fishon! Sports: Long Line Spey casting
12:30-1:30- Lunch Provided by Bob Meiser, R.B. Meiser Rods
1:30-2:00ish- Monte Ward
2:00-2:30ish- Sam Sickles: Steelhead Outfitters: Advanced Spey Casting.

There will also be the following rod and gear companies on hand:
Loop USA--James Park
R.B. Miser Rods—Bob Meiser
Fishon! Sports—Us Distributor of LTS Fly Fishing—Donna O’Sullivan
Vision Fly Fishing USA—Monte Ward
Anderson Custom Rods—Gary Anderson
Native Fish Society
Siskiyou Aviary
It looks like a great time! See you next week!
