Just wanted to see how many from this forum are coming to the sandy river spey clave? There is a great lineup this year, the one's I'm looking forward to seeing the most are Klaus Frimor and Al Buhr.

I'm going to be there interviewing 14' 8 wts for a place in my starting lineup......AND Gary Anderson's new series of 14'4" sticks! Maybe an interlude with some mid-bellies as well.

Warning to all newcomers (like I was last year) the Sandy clave can get expensive, cost me a Meiser 15' 8/9 MKS on my first visit. God only knows what it will be this year.

Eddy, you are really going to enjoy the Clave. It's a great time! Unfortunately I will be stuck in Seattle and unable to attend.

Better yet they even FEED YOU for free!

There is a small entry fee to the park ($5.00 but once you're in ... your in.

Here's a full over view of Oxbow Park, camping, etc. One thing that did catch my attention is apparently you can now 'reserve' a camp site ($20.00/nt). If you plan on over nighting I'd strongly recommend you dial up that number and get on the list.

Spoiled

I go every year and live only a short drive away. I wish they had better RV access. Think group camp with like minded folks. Could involve some spirits, stories, cigars and favorite patterns.

I'll be testing out a new edition to my quiver Meiser and who knows what else.
Great stuff and great people.

Back Eddy, you going all the way from Denver! I live in Fort Collins but was in Portland for about 11 years and attended many of these over the years. You going for the clave only?

I might be there

Friday at least. We should have name tags with our Spey Clave forum usernames! Tom, we met on the Clearwater last fall so I think I'll be able to recognize you. Hope it doesn't cost me a Meiser. Or maybe I hope it does.

Sandy Clave

In todays screwed up world of constant change, we need some anchors that assure us the earth is still upright & spinning on it's normal axis. Rob Allen sitting at the Burkie booth is one of those anchors. :chuckle: It just didn't look right @ Spey-O-Rama.

When Al Buhr speaks, pay attention. That guy is a treasure trove of information. And every mow & then, pure gold is revealed.

Been some time last I could make that drive; Old 'Doggie Dog's,' and me,
pick up a rod and take it down to the river. 'Well what do you think?'

Park People cut me/11 year old Dogs a hell of a lot of 'slack.'

Mike,

I certainly remember meeting you last fall at Poppy's clave. You can likely find me down at the river with a stack of 14'ers. If not I'll see you on the Clearwater next fall. Have my 15' MKS 8/9 up and running and it looks like it will be a super hammer for those B's. Going stupid right now for mie-long bellies and SPG is not helping my affliction. Every time I talk to the guy he ends up digging into my wallet. I have sneaking suspicion that some of the vendors at Sandy will be doing the same next weekend.

Hope to see you there.

Tom

These guys will be there. What to finish dressing for the one in the vice, hmmm, I hear the water is running low, so some low-ish water stuff to take maybe. Hopefully going to make it 5-for-5. Oh yeah, that thing at the park with all the rods and people... Still waiting for the Klausinator...

I'll be there Friday and Sunday, not sure on Saturday. This will be my 4th year.
Have a great time every year. Wish I could camp over but that's not the case.
Hope to see you all there.

It would be great if you would come Fred... I am heading over to this again it will be a great time , BUT this time I am thinking ahead and camping so no more green suited fog horn leg horn people blasting " THE PARK IS NOW CLOSED" :confused: My first thought was ,,,what the heck was that?.. I have no idea I must have been hearing things again,,, just keep swinging... A few minutes later and just as the shade started setting on the river and the fish starting to move and roll around all happy..... and BOOOM "THE PARK IS NOW CLOSED"" " :mad: Closed!? :razz: I considered just letting the tow the P.O.J. Ford fiesta away, but it was long walk back to town.


I can not wait to get out of the old dust factory . It is a beautiful park containing a nice little river , some great people all into spey fishing, and free food. Really what more could a man ask for?
Please stop by the booth and say hello. I will be sporting my pages handle so you know who I am. :D

O Ya one thing is for sure as I am camping next to the Meiser boy's this year. I will 100% for sure... NOT leave Mrs. SpeyCo's Tablet in his camp and unlocked..

...Morning sunshine.... or should I say a Full moon?
