Hi Jim, thanks for the words of encouragement
In truth, it is not my website, I am only a Moderator/Administrator here. Dana Sturn sold the Speypages to Verticalscope, a website company.
I am here to ensure our members have a voice and that this forum continues in the traditions set out by Dana.
This is the place I come to to talk fishing and hang out with friends that I have made along the way. I want to be a part of it and ensure it lasts.
We survived the Facebook crazy, the Instagram phase and Twitter. That's because our basic principals have not changed, they are the same as they were 20 years ago. I believe it is a successful plan, I want to ensure it stays that way. So, I'm more of an advocate for this forum more than anything else.
I do appreciate your kind words though
I see both his deleted threads for lines.
None of them give a description of what lines are offered.
One thread says 20 "spey lines" for $100.
Second thread says 18 "spey lines" for $100.
No mention of type, style or line weight.
