Glass & Grass Rod Casting 'clave August 8th in Redmond

#20
I forgot about the Sir D I'll be bringing along. Many of you have possibly heard of this taper, but never had a chance to cast one. This is another ofWayne Cattanach taper's that is a 7' 4 wt., taper modified by the late Darryl Hayashida. Very fast for a bamboo rod and lots of fun to cast to rising trout on a lake or stream.

Good idea. I also have two, though will probably fill them up with my own rods.
i'm bringing 2 for my rods as well. it sure made things easier last time! i'm bringing a new-to-me Orvis (phillipson), new Seele Rapid 886, my old SA System 5 rod, a 7'9" 3/4wt Steffen, and if by some miracle, my Tom Morgan "streamer special" is finished, i'll bring that too.
i'm glad this is finally on the books!!

I didn't reply to the survey, because I'm going to be away much of August, but I will be in town on the 8th and will try to make it. I look forward to trying out a few of these rods. I could bring a couple rods, but don't know much about either bamboo or glass compared to many of you, so will mostly be gawking.

Let's get together Saturday August 8th at 9:00 AM in Redmond to cast cane and glass rods. Bring your own rods and you can try others' rods too! Also please bring chairs (to sit on) and folding tables or horses (to put rods on). BYO food and drinks too. The park has few amenities for a group gathering - but it's a big open and flat field and gets very little use, so should be perfect for the main point of this gathering: casting fly rods!

Meet in Redmond at Cascade View Neighborhood Park. It's across the street from part of the main Microsoft campus off NE 40th and is just a few blocks off Rte. 520. Address and map:

CASCADE VIEW NEIGHBORHOOD PARK
16202 NE 40th St, Redmond, WA

Hope to see you there!

Do you want to post something in FFR for the few guys there who live nearby and may not visit WFF regularly?

Might be tough, I work weekends a lot, but if I can manage I would love to attend. I can only bring a couple plastic rods at this time, 389 LL and a sweet so underrated 583 DS, both old school plastic to the show if permissible? Maybe to keep it balanced?

Shoot, I know I'd like to meet you even if you brought no rods. Old graphite is great too.

Hell yeah, for the many years on this board I have only met a handful, but then again I'm a introvert on the main waters....and many waters I fish I see few if any...;)

damn, bummed I can't make this one...

my, uh, "social coordinator" tends to over-book our summers...(although this particular weekend was all me, and I'm not cancelling that date...)

If we can manage to get this going again next year, or even another one this year, I'll likely have the Bandit (being worked on as we speak) along with a half dozen other glass rods.

Cheers,
Randy
