    Dateline November 13, 2004

    What a glorious day in the Pacific Northwest! The glistening red, gold and rust leaves floated gently down around the Tolt River. Against this backdrop, fifty men experimented with the newest Meiser rods under the watchful eyes of their creators. Bob Meiser and Mike Kinney were please to see the newest Meiser spey rods the Mike Kinney Specials, a northwest casting style rod, in the hands of international guests. The MKS Series rods were an outstanding success.

    The 13'6" was tested by novice and expert casters with the same result; most everyone who cast it enjoyed it. The lines that were tested were custom heads, short, mid an long belly lines with weights from 490 grains to 880 grains making this a most versitale spey rod. (The 7/8 XLT was the test line.)

    It has been an extreme pleasure to be associated with and help with the development of this rod series. It is my hope that Mr. Meisier continues with his endeavours in the future. Refreshments were provided at the river by Jehovah-Rophe Academy. The critique was held at River Run Anglers with smoked salmon and single malt hors d'oeuvres.

    Many Thanks to all who attended.

    I have one simple request to drop both me and Bob Mieser a E-mail rmeiser@charter.net and let us know what you thought.
