All who attended in person (or like myself/ vicariously this year) can express their appreciation to Mark and staff for the heck of an organizational job in putting on Spey Clave #2. (Have already confirmed that there will be a Spey Clave #3!!!!!!!:D ).

A good way "of saying Thanks!" is to consider 'voting' with your purchase dollars directed towards gear from Mark's fine establishment. If you 'click' on the "SPEY CLAVE" event box on the upper left of your screen you go right to his store in Welches, OR. As a personal testimony, I've done "several transactions" (one of his guys said yesterday, I didn't need the credit card number as he'd memorized it .... a good thing, or a bad thing? :rolleyes: ).

Great folks to work with, prices are as good or better than anywhere else, no sales tax and, best of all, they pay for the shipping (that will save you 5 to 8 bucks by itself!!). Please consider saying 'thank you' to Mark by calling his 800 #.

Thanks Mark

I second Fred's motion. Mark, Patty,Bob and Laura worked real hard to make this Sandy Clave the great gathering that it was.
The very least we can do to show our gratitude is to support the people who made it happen. The FLy Shop is at www.flyfishusa.com

Joan is right; you are spending way too much on Fly Fishing gear! What is that credit card number? <VBG> Mark's shop needs no more recommendation than the extraordinary way that he runs his business.

What a great job he did in organizing Spey Clave II. It was an incredible opportunity to watch the top talent in the Spey world perform their magic. They make it look so easy; Andy, Dec, Simon and Steve where all in top form. Dec even provided some plant identification for those not from the area. <g> Having the top hands around allowed some to neglect mentioning Brian Silvey's outstanding presentation and Billy Williams with his Wild Turkey Cast. That left a bunch of us bamboozled. There are guys (and a couple of girls) all over North America walking into walls and tripping over fireplugs trying to imagine how you make that cast. Was that a counter clockwise overhead roll? Mark even kicked off the day with a "no nonsense" demonstration of Spey casting to catch steelhead and not for the sole purpose of impressing your friends. <g> Way and Steve had a great opportunity to showcase their new line and enjoy some well deserved compliments, congratulations.

There was an incredible array of equipment to try out and also of experts willing to answer questions. Plus there were all those friendly fellow spey casters around.

What's the date for next year? Need to book it into my calendar so I am able to attend. (Hint, hint)

"Wild Turkey???" Had that in a glass with one 'cube,'

but a cast. All right you'd better remember how to do that or you buy lunch next week at the Texas BBQ:devil:

Spey Clave III

I have seen posts from a lot of people I would liked to have met had I known they were at the Sandy Clave. May I suggest that next year we do name tags?

Ah yes, the 'improvement list' is already a'buildin.'

Name tags are on it already. Mark, et. al. have a couple of other goodies planned for next year.
