And so the book closes on yet another unbelievable spey gathering on a gorgeous steelhead river, the Sandy. I am sure there will be many testimonials from the wide variety of places people hailed from to attend. From my perspective, I was able to see a little more of what Mark Bachmann, Brian Silvey, Leroy, and my host Andre among others call their home water and I hope I will collect a little bit more of the Sandy toward my own "home waters" collection every time I visit in the years to come.
As much as I lust for time on steelhead water, it was hard to forfeit even a minute of the clave. With many of the most knowledgable and accomplished spey and single handed casters a guy (or gal) could think of in one place, it's quite a unique event. Like others have posted, everyone is willing to assist anyone - just ask.
There were so many high points I could not possibly list them here so I will let the images tell the story when I can get the slideshow together within the next few days.
It was truly a great pleasure to celebrate Spey fishing with everyone this weekend!
