True, you do get some funny looks. I was practicing this fall on the white river and you should have scene some of looks I got...I am sure my casting and bright yellow loop rod didn't help....I have never been to clave before, but they look like a lot of work or preparartion.. Perhaps a Mini Clave on the Salmon on December 15th? Atleast share some ideas, and get a few pointers. Oh and maybe even hook a chromer!

Sure. I'm in for anything.

DSR would be a good location for some kinda shindig. How do these things get organized? Should we talk with Greg Lui at Whitaker's? See if they are up for sponsorship or something?

Put some dates out that could work.

Get the ball rolling put some possible dates out and lets see who is available to get out and play. The DSR is a great place and if contacted maybe they would lower the rates for those there participating the gathering. I know I'm dreaming on lower rates for the day.

Forgive my ignorance

What or where is DSR? I'd be up for something spey in the spring as I am about to have low back surgery next week and hopefully will have recovered by next spring.
A striper spey clave in Mass would be nice -- a bunch of us new Maine spey casters could come as a group probably.
Juro, will your group have a booth at the Marlboro show since the Wilmington show is cancelled?

The Saranac

The mouth of the Saranac River has plenty of space. The river has a run, albiet fairly small, of landlocked salmon plus it's resident population of trout. Somewhat centrally located to boot.

I'm in

It will be nice to see Juro again, put faces to names, and especially get some more instruction. Now if I can just schedule it around work as I have the Michigan Spey Clave, it would be great. I'm for anywhere in the NE area, Salmon River and east, but I will drive to the Michigan one again. It was worth the 10 hour drive.

Still nothing planned, but atleast we have sparked some local interests. Anyone want to try and make this happen? I have never attended one how does one go about pulling something like this off?

DSR Spey Days 07 ?

Still nothing planned, but atleast we have sparked some local interests. Anyone want to try and make this happen? I have never attended one how does one go about pulling something like this off?
In Aug.05 there was a Spey Clave @ DSR though i found out only days before.Too late to get things together in time:( .It was on Yankee Fly Shop's site that I found out about the Spey Clave.In 06 an email to them came back as they knew of nothing yet:confused: . A later email to DSR came back as no one had any thing in the making yet & they would let me know if any thing was to happen.Alas I guess nothing happened:mad: .Maybe we can find out through DSR who did the one in 05 & contact those folks to see if we can do a clave in 07:D ?

Gillie ran the '05 clave at DSR and did a spectacular job. Alas, I don't think his heart or head is up to it again. At least to go it alone. There was a lot of work into getting the DSR clave up and running so if you're thinking of running one there start your work now.
