I'm surprised he's coming over this year. With the cancellation of the fly show, I didn't think he'd be around here. Guess he's still got commitments in the area.

Has to be a great experience. I have had a little free help from him at the Sandy Clave and noticed the improvement of the casting of those trying out rods and lines as Simon went down the bank and gave a hint or two here and there. He is a real gentlemen and a great instructor. I wish I had done that earlier in my spey casting pursuit.

I have taken this class and I learned a lot. Simon's instruction is equal only to his charm and sense of humor. Both are way up the charts. You will have a good time and you will come away a better spey caster.

I attended a 3 day class in 1999 with Simon and Jim Vincent of Rio,,,,, best investment I ever made for casting the two handed rods.

I took a small notebook and wrote down important concepts as they demonstrated on the river, we had 6 students for each instructor then rotated 1/2 day each.

Have a great time.

Regards,
FK

That must have been a treat. Both are outstanding but I think Simon Gawesworth might be the best instructor out there for pure knowledge, experience, humor, you name it. I bought his video, book, and streamside guide so I could always refresh my memory on what I'm doing correctly or in most cases, incorrectly.
