A speypages/speyclave "scoop" for the Sandy Clavers:

Just finished chatting with Simon Gawesworth who informs me that he will unveil the new RIO GrandSpey line this weekend at the Sandy Clave. This is exciting news! While I don't have any specs on the line Simon assures me that a sample will soon be en route to speypages headquarters and I'll look forward to the test casts. He has also provided an updated listing of his rod/line recommendations including the GrandSpey, and I'll post these asap.

DAMN!

Timing coincidental???? :hehe: Gotta love Mr. Vincent (a real Spey Bubba if you know what I mean :chuckle: ) and the folks at Rio.

Plus they have managed to really keep this under the rug as I just talked with the rep. this past Friday and he made no mention of it. :mad: And now he is in Africa so I can not hit him up for the details! :mad: :mad:

Guess I'll just have to wait for the details...like the rest of us. :mad:

Can't wait to try it out! My current project status is looking good, with the laptop on the plane I should be able to finalize some specifications for the next release and get to Sandy R. if all goes well over the next several hours...

PSYCHED!:smokin:

Dana,

Did you say that you in fact would be getting a demo line? That is great, I can't wait to try it! I'm impressed, the line is announced and right away demos are available - go figure.

Just got back from the Friday night "pre-clave". Met several neat people like Simon, Way, Steve and others. Speycasters are some of the nicest people.
Cast the Grandspey for a few minutes. It was a 9-10 line on a 15' 10 wt. T & T. The head was 72 feet long. The running line is the color of the Midspey but the belly is the color of the WC. kinda cool. I didn't spend enough time with the line to form a real opinion other than that the 15' 10wt. is a telephone pole of a rod and needs a real heavy line to load it

PS: It's nice to see that the "No Alcohol" rule at Oxbow park has been waived.:devil:
