The Jimmy Green Spey-O-Rama is an event in memory of Jim Green, a long time and honored member of the Golden Gate Angling & Casting Club. Jim was not only one of fly fishing's great innovators, but also a champion
tournament caster. He strongly believed that casting competitions should simulate real fishing conditions as much as possible and that they should use equipment that is generally available to the public rather than specialized competition tackle available to only a few
insiders. The pioneering spey casting contests he hosted years ago were based on those principles and are the model for the Spey-O-Rama competition. We recognize that other prominent competitions have different rules that make for longer casts, but we hope our contest will show anglers what great casters can do under fishing conditions with tackle in common use today. It's no coincidence that the top casters in other competitions have also come out on top in the Spey-O-Rama. We think it's a tough but true test of what the world's best casters can do.
