    I'll be there. But just to watch and eat. The food is free but they do ask for a donation. The money goes to a good cause. I think it's about three bucks. This is what a little bird told me. SO you can take it what it's worth.

    No,it's at Big Eddy access on the Skykomish river. Just east Of Goldbar. Cross over the bridge and look to the right and you'll be there.

    Cats are free if you can cast them to the seam.

    Durn tootin' I'll be there, as I was last year. And it has vastly more to offer than low-priced chili and hotdogs: free demonstrations/instruction by some of the best spey casters in the Western Hemisphere, windrows of shiny new rods to try out, faces to match with website names. Here's a major plus: have you wondered how such-and-such a line would work on your favorite spey rod? Of course you have - that seems to be spey casters' Number One topic of discussion. Well, you'll probably be able to try out that line, thanks to mfg. reps who will have it spooled on a reel and ready to go.

    This is the subject that really throws me on this spey thing. I want to but there is so much new stuff out there that a newby doesn't have a clue as where to began. In fly fishing a one hander it seems close cut on what to use. But with a two hander all that you knew goes out the window. Whats an old man to do??????????????

    Well, I'm hoping to go. But as of right now, I'm REALLY torn. LOL. Have a chance to go fishing on the Duc/Bogie this weekend. Luckily, can sit and drink coffee (will be pulling plugs mostly) so won't have to kill my shoulder to go fishing. But, want to meet some of the members too, and check out the clave. So up in air. We'll see. LOL. Just don't know if I want to dope up on percocet to go fishing.

    I think I will go after fishing in the morning on
    Saturday. It is hard to pass on free food.
    Great line up of spey pros is not to shabby either.

    I ran into Steve Choate at the end of the day on the Kalama. He was practicing his 150 foot cast...damn he's good!

    I wish I could be there but I'll be fishing...I'll have to catch the spey clave on the Sandy river, OR., later this spring.
