tom larimer?

posted this on the sandy clave thread in the claves section, but thought someone might be able to help me here, as well. thanks!

_____________________
found this on a post regarding last year's clave video. it's from a guy named Rob Estlund...

Monster casts in background

Throughout the tape, many different casters were demoing rods in the background. One caster in particular really stands out. The kind of casting that should be in the foreground, not the background. I'm about 99% certain that caster was Tom Larimer. Originally from Milwaukee, WI, Tom now guides on the Deschutes. His casting is incredible and I believe based on the unique stance, timing, loop shape, and loop speed that it was him in the background.

Maybe next year's video will include a segment by him!

Great video! Can't wait for next year's.


__________________

that said, anyone heard if tom larimer's coming? his name wasn't on the program.

i've met him both in oregon and back in milwaukee and not only can the guy cast, he's got a real pragmatic approach on how to fish oregon and washington waters, meaning he stresses the controlled short game as much as he does the long-line casting and with respect to long belly tradition, he's got a great justification for the shooting head's shallower d loops we need to effectively fish tight canyon water.

seems to me he'd be a real asset to the local spey community! hopefully we'll see him there.

Thank you for the interests.
We are not going to shoot a video this year.
However, Tom Larimer will be in the Loop booth both days.

As someone else has already noted...

Bring your/a name tag so we can tell the 'real spey guys' from the tourists.
:D

A charity clinic tag .. even better.:devil: Poop! forgot to add: I've got a box of 'clip on' name tag holder; I'll bring them up. Make up a 'tag,' (Board/real name would be good) and I'll leave them with
Bob Larsell (Flybob on the board) and Ms. Laura for your use.

Name tags

Great Idea. Need to put faces with names.

Also, a few of us spey guys have formed a spey club in Salem called the North Santiam River Spey Casters. We are planning on put up a canopy so it will sunshine and not rain. In case you forget your name tag, we will have some pasties available. Stop by, get a name tag and chat. Klem

I'll be there again this year; probably staying Friday night and possibly Saturday night, too. Last year I had my son, this year it will be my daughter if her sprained ankle is sufficiently better.

I look forward to seeing some of you again, and meeting some more of you. Just don't expect my casting to be any better than last year! My tackle is no better, either, so don't laugh!

Klem, I'll have to look for you. I've been thinking about hitting the N. Santiam, hopefully this coming week. Not sure yet. I'm south of Portland so not particularly close, but I'm curious about some different water. I've passed by the N. Santiam many times, but never fished it. I'd like to meet some people with N. Santiam experience, just to find out the general part of the river I should look at. I'm also curious what the water temps are like, and how far one needs to cast. If conditions are reasonable, I'll take one of my kids down. Otherwise, it will be an exploratory trip for me, if I make it.

Name Tags

We are making name tags too.
Will try to bring extras also.
Glad we are all on the same page.
The excitment is building.
We are fielding lots and lots of phone calls and emails.
Looks like we are going to have a great turn-out.
More good news: there are chrome bright fish in the river and the water is low enough that even the short-line guys can reach them.
We're going to have a party.

Fred you got the Scotch I have the ice

I guess I am going if my youngest daughter has her Second Child ( my fourth grandchild ).
If every thing works out all right I will be leaving on Thursday and hope to get some fishing in this time.

Fred and JD raided my fly box last time and I never go a chance to fish. ( Just kidding)
I am fooling them this year by going a day early to fish


:devil:

Sandy Spey Clave

It rainded hard here last night and the river came up and turned color, just slightly. That should bring a new batch of fish for the week end. The weather report predicts sunny skies for Saturday & Sunday.
Everything is on track.

Lines to try

Aaron from River Run is coming and he had some jetstreams on reels last Saturday, so you should get to try one.

I am planning on coming to pick up one of Meiser's rods, find a line for it, get in a fishing fix, and enjoy the event. Come if you can, it will be well worth the time, especially for the newbies.

Chatting with 'the Meiz' a few days back ..

and he said the Carron lines and his rods were a 'match made in heaven.' (Memory here only) but the 10/11, as it's actually matched with AFTA (right initials?) and the 'fes' 13-6 was a cannon match.

He's ordered up the other Carron lines to 'play with.'' Uncle Bob? Can I come out and play too????":devil: :hehe:
