Speyfair 2005 is History

Over the three days of Speyfair we had 2 ½ days of great weather and the last ½ day was drizzle.

It was nice to see old friends and make new ones. The turn out of the Spey community made the effort put forth in planning the Speyfair worth while.

Special thanks to my Financial Adviser Rondi Kilbury

(These two girls really know how to take care of their dad.)

Brian was casting a 15' 10 weight Burkheimer and a 85' 11/12 Carron line.
For the short head he was casting a 13' 10 weight Burkie with the 11/12 Hardy salmon head.
Kush was casting a 16'7" CND Thompson Specialist with a CND line I think.

Are the dates for next years event scheduled?

I'm thinking of having a trip for steelhead fishing next year and it would been great to participate on a speyclave during my visit.

What caught my eye is the difference between the two is only 5 feet. Given Tyler's rod was (?) probably over 15' in length, thought the distance between the two would have been a bit more. What lines were the fellows using?
