Ryan,

Why not go for the individual, private, full day of spey casting lessons for $1500.00? Of course, there is all that salmon and steelhead water in the area around Baltimore as well. Maybe he worked for the Congresional Office of Budget and Management?

You guys spend too much time "trolling" this Board. :>)

Now that I missed, as I was looking at the rods. Noodles by the one photo. But, still (other than a 'get rich quick' scam) anyone heard of these (clowns?) fellows. $1,000-$1,500 per day???? And, no ... I don't think you'll find 'their' photo's on the wall in our local Post Office. Maybe they should??

Holy Cow! I'm in the wrong business!
:devil:

On the about phillip page, one of the pictures (the one in the bottom right) looks like the line is coming off the top of the reel. The reel is set up to be left-handed, but he's turned it around to be right-handed. He's not doing it on purpose, because on other pages he's got it set up correctly.

Wow... they're also offering a 21'3" spey rod.

Maxwell goes "True Speycasting" for bluegills...

I have been wondering what happened to the venerable pioneer of PNW speyfishing. It appears he has been reincarnated in the East!

I've got to get one of those Galellic (sp) Kilts for summer spey fishing, I wonder what the winter model looks like ? :D

Fred do you have any of those ?

Can't see a big market down in Maryland for spey fishing but the Washington crowd needs something to spend their weekends on and then talk about it back on Capitol hill.

BTW, whats the secret of the 12' 3" spey rod length ? I don't want to spend the $ 1,500 for the one day lesson to find out.

At first I was concerned that once again we break from policy about providing direct promotion for a non-sponsor commercial interest, something I am growing very weary of watching after and it's clear some action to prevent this is in order, and this is in progress.

But then I took a look at the site and decided that I am far more concerned about what people will think of flyfishing if they review this site! :hehe:

Very, very embarassing...... Monty Python goes Spey......?
It amazing what marketing can do to genuine crap- bet more than one rookie, especially those with a slight "Lord-complex", have fallen into that lots trap.

Part that tickles me the most is you don't even go

on the water for a grand! (2nd sentence) And by the way, what's a "sey rod?" Loved their add for the rod tube for the 21 footer; Multip. rod tubes available. Even as a seven section rod, the size of a single tube would equal a shoulder fired anti-aircraft weapon.

fae

ps: Don't worry Juro; doubt too many of the Board members will be popping over to take the class, or sending bank drafts either.
:>)


BEGINNERS CLASS
6-Hours with lunch provided
$1,000 for from one to two students and $500 for the third student
Learn the components of long rod fishing whether for the fast action two-handed rod, traditonal two-handed spey rod or classic two handed sey rod. You'll learn how to carry and hold a rod; basic movements for casting; important knots for fishing, and the historical overview of the art of casting. You'll perform actual casting in a field with a special device called a “grass catcher” as well as witness the professional demonstration of single handed, double handed and other basic but important casts with a rod.

I see you guys went to the photo section also ..

Didn't have the heart to bring that one up. The reel on the rods weigh in at more than most of the 'catch' shown.

Sigh. Good point above about P T Barnum.:eek:

I think this comment above deserves a 'prize' for the best laugh ever in a Board post!

"The totals for the day were 20 fish for 156 inches for Philip and 24 fish for 187 inches for me"

With the size of the fish you need the "traditional Northwest"action. I hate catching smolt!

No I really would like Dana to get one of these rods demo the thing and shut all of up!

I'll agree the price is CRAZY, but if the guy can put food on his table maybe his clients should be removed from the gene pool not him.

Andre: good point on the gene pool.

A candidate for the annual "Darwin Awards?" If you fellows arn't aware of these hit Google and look up "past winners." And they're all 'past tense.'
