RIVER RUN ANGLERS ANNAVERERY SPEYCLAVE SATURDAY NOVEMBER 29TH 2003.

Been working on getting this Clave togeather.
It will follow the same format as usual short presentation , free instruction and many rods for you cast.

Will have the nearly complete line of the CND SPECIALIST there I think we have one or two more in the series in development.
As many of you know that the Rod line made it's debuted at Last year at my first Speyclave and things have never been the Same since.

Mr. Meiser has graciously sent some of his new toys for us to cast away the day with and yes, the Claymore will be there

There will be a couple other rods that will be there which we can't talk about here until the makers get off the nickel and join the forum.

We, as always, are looking forward to casting with every one of you

Directions.
Come North to I90, East to Exit 22.
North to Preston, Fall City. Left on 203 to Carnation.
After you cross the Tolt River bridge turn left right away into the driveway and proceed to the end of the road.
That is where we play.

Times?

Greetings Speybum,

Just wondering when the festivities are starting? Around 11? 12?

Maybe if Mr Meiser is able to get my custom switch rod completed I'll bring it to play with.

Looking forward to it -

Brian

Opps

Doulbe Spey,

I will start setting up around 9:30 and we can start casting.
Will do the main presentaion about 12:00 or so.

Mr Meiser has some new toys coming and there may be some other surprizes with them.


Just one question ?
Who is bringing the Krispy Kreams.?

:devil:

Ed and I plan to be there, Al Buhr is trying to work it in and probably can. Vern Olson is missing but he wanted to attend this one also. Not a good weekend if the family is strung out all over the place.

Would you please put in an order for nice weather on the 29th?

Two Weekends too much

I would love to be there to share the good time with everyone, but two weekends in a row to Seattle is too much, besides we have friends coming from that direction for Thanksgiving.

Aaron, Jack, Brian, and others will really help with your casting, and you get your hands on so many goodies!!!

Aaron/Jack do a very COOL mini-'Clave.

Road show on the Rogue was a total hoot, and VERY well attended. At the end of the day 'we' had to shoo folks home so, the greater 'we,' could go get dinner going. Then they had to go do a fly clinic!!!

Excellent Guys! If you have the opportunity to come to one of Aaron/Jack's mini'-Claves spend the few bucks for the gas. Very well worth the trip.
fae, et. all, from So. Oregon!

Just noted that Marlow and Ed will be there; PLEASE give both a huge hug for Joan and I. Had the distinct pleasure of meeting Mr.Bumpus /wife and Ed at the Sandy 'Clave. Lordie, Joan and I are glad folks stopped us on Sunday PM and asked if you've 'met?' I taped much of Saturday's instructors, and Ed's presentation answered a lot of 'how to' questions. No count, but have sent out at least 10 or 11 copies of my vid. tape from the 'Clave.

Would welcome them all to So. Or. for a bit of 'non-combat' fishing!
fae/jee/et. al.

Aaron,

It looks like I will be there Saturday. I'll have the Specialists as well as a few of the Customs and Experts.

Aaron has them too

At least most of them, so there should be pleanty of rods and lines to go around for those who want to test.

If you are new at spey casting, get there!!! You can get some great instruction that will drastically shorten your learning curve for the sport.

Beyond that, you will get to know some great folks.

Thanks Speybum!

I'll be there.

Wow - i didn't realize it was THIS Saturday:eek:

Since it's unfair to assume that Bob (Meiser) will defy the laws of Postal Delivery and suddenly make my switch rod appear back in Seattle before it's even scheduled to arrive in Medford, I guess I'll just have to experiment with some of those new CND Specialist rods I haven't had a chance to cast!

For the record - I tried the GrandSpey 7/8 with the Salar and was very impressed. What a great combination! Second only to the Carron Jetstream, for which there is as of yet no competition.

See you on the river,

DS

Doublespey,

I also heard Juro sing the praises of the Jetstream on the Salar. I have only cast it on some other rods but agree it is the finest floater I have ever cast. Have you or any of the others here ever cut one for use with tips? For what that puppy costs, I am leary of taking the scissors to it.

Which Jetstream?

Which Jetstream for the Salar and just what do they cost and where are they available?
Thanks

Ted,

I would be guessing the 10/11 version. They cost 75 pounds British Sterling plus shipping. Do a web search and you will find at least one UK shop that sells them.

Double the cost?

That is approximately double the cost of an XLT or Grandspey. Is it that much better?

Cut one?

Hell, I don't even OWN one yet!

When I finally get my hands on one, you bet I'll cut it once I have a good idea of the taper. A micrometer would probably help

On second thought, I might just leave it as a full floater and use the GrandSpey 7/8 as the sinktip workhorse.

Funny - the GS 7/8 probably weighs a bit more than the Carron Jetstream 10/11! Both with similar ~80 bellys. Go figure?

To others who asked if it's that much better?? Everyone (i've talked to) who's tried it has been absolutely amazed at it's turnover, castability, and shootability. I don't like the idea of spending that much for a flyline either, but if you plan on spending more than a bit of time swinging the Salar it's well worth the investment IMHO.

Unfortunately Doublespey is right.

It is about twice as good( insert wallet screaming ).

I aint cutting it though when I get one.

DS Try your first please?

DS - perhaps we could get together to test after you get yours. A short trial would let me know if it is worth it for me.

Gee!!! looks like I can try to beg a test cast from Sean too - woohoo.

It is a great line to say the least! I just had to have one but when Ian told me it would cost 100$ U.S I kinda choked, now I wish I would have just bought the darn thing and got over it. You can never have to many spey lines.... or rods for that matter!

Thanks,
Ted

Not sure I would say twice as good but it is a very very nice line. I have yet to cast it on the Salar yet but on a 15' 10 weight Loop Yellow, it rocks.
