This year’s Kaufmanns’ Spey Days will be held Saturday and Sunday, the Febuary 24th & 25th at new location: the Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife boat launch/parking area at Lewis St. on the Skykomish in Monroe. Festivities will begin at 9:30 am. both days.

This year’s presenters will include George Cook, Ed Ward, Scott O’Donnell & Mike McCune, Way Yin and Al Buhr.

We will be offering a slightly different format then we have in past years. The presenter’s presentations will be limited to 20 minutes followed by 20-30 minutes of hands on instruction from the presenters following their demonstration. So be ready with your waders on and rod and reel in hand to get some one on one help….

If you have any questions please contact me at 425-643-2246, Jerry toll free at 1-800-442-4359 or email me at [email protected].

Great Format

Thanks for getting the "hands on" portion put into your programs. Teaching and sharing are integral parts of the clave events. All the Icons I know enjoy sharing and teaching more than the soapbox and recognize it's lasting impact on the sport and fellow enthusiasts.

Good on Ya! :)

Couple of quick questions:

Why the change in location (just curious), and is/are there any RV parks in the immediate area? (Or is it 'OK' to 'dry camp' at the boat launch?)

We decided to give it a go at a differant location because the many requets for the event to be held a little closter to Town. We wanted to keep it on the Skykomish and the Lewis St. Boat Launch is the only facility that is closer that would be able to accomadate what we needed.

Right now, I am working the State DF&W to let those that would like keep a RV there. Presently the State does not allow overnight stays but that was also the case at High Bridge and we were able to get that waived for us.

Ill keep everyone posted!

well the WDFW said "no" to any overnight camping. however, just down the street is Lavro Boats and I know people setup their RV's there often. www.lavroboats.com

also a note to all. Ed Ward will not be able to attend this year. and Tyler Kushnir will be presenting on Sunday.

Ryan,

Isn't the river bank all a steep rip-rap area at the boat ramp? Is there a gravel bar at the downstream end? You can probably tell I don't get up there much.

we will be setting up in the back (westside) of the parking lot. there is a trail that leads down to a small gravel bar and a LARGE flat and riffle that will provide ample room for demonstrations and casting.

Looks like a great opportunity. I plan on attending on Saturday w/ my dad. I'd love to put some faces w/ names, so say hello. I'm pretty easy to spot. I'm 6'7", 250 lbs., and have a graying moustache and goatee. If there happens to be someone else in attendance who fits those general descriptions, I'll be the one w/ the beat up brownie who can't cast a lick:)

Fishing before the Spey Days

I have a couple of days free before the Spey Days gathering and would like to fish on one of the area rivers. I am travelling from Alaska and will be free Weds and Thurs for an outing.

I am willing to share the cost of a guide if needed.

Please email or PM me if you would be interested.
