River Run Anglers is proud to announce Speyfair 2005 (formerly known as Speyclave) will be held on October 21-23, 2005, in Carnation, Washington. I have booked space for this year's Speyfair at the Tolt-MacDonald Park, less than a mile from the shop. In addition to the casting demonstrations we will be conducting distance casting games. Please see the rules below.

At this time in October, the river should hold the peak of the summer
steelhead run. There should also be many King, Coho, and pink salmon
present. I have reserved a large barn on the park grounds, which will
provide shelter for vendor booths, fly tying and line splicing
demonstrations, and informal attendee discussion.~ A non-profit organization
will offer food items at the Speyfair site on a donation basis. Please plan to join us this year.

Casting Computation Participates

Those of you who will be participating in the distance casting please e-mail [email protected] so the Speyfair Director can start to compile a schedule of qualification times.

You will be able to qualify in each one of the Rod Lenghts and line styles.

So this will amount to four casting events.
