After hearing a lot about spey casting from my brother and listening to some of you on this board, I had to stick around today, Saturday and listen to Simon Gawesworth give a history, demo and running lesson on Spey Casting. This talk alone was worth the drive from B'ham and price of admission. I had been thinking from what little I have heard of spey casting that it may be applicable to a single hand rod like most of us have and use. Well a single hand rod is what he used for most of the 1/2 hour or so. Wonderful teacher and I was so happy to have stayed the entire day. If you have any interest in furthering your casting with any rod, you should make a point and go see him tomorrow, Sunday at 1:15 PM in the main room. Steve Rajeff in front of him was good also but I only caught the tail end of his talk. I saw who I went for and that was Phil Rowley from Alberta and Brian Chan from B.C. Bumped into Leland Miyawaki at the Kaufman's booth, great guy and I also met the couple that owns All About The Fly, a shop I hear a lot of you talk about. They were fun to talk with also. They were hanging out at the Temple Fork booth. I missed everyone else or just passed you in the aisles. Spey casting put a whole new light on things and I see why those of you who are into it love it so much.
