In the spirit of the new forum, what do you guys think about putting together some kind of local spey clave this spring or summer? I know that there will be a big one up in WNY in early June, but I highly doubt I'll be able to make that as my wife and I are expecting bambino numero uno around that same time.

I'm thinking it would be a good opportunity for those of us fishing two-handers to trade ideas/advice, try some different gear out and do a little fishing while we're at it. It would also be a great opportunity for those that are curious about spey fishing to try it out. Maybe even get some local shops like Eldredge Bros in on it with demonstrations of gear and techniques.

Thoughts?

East Coast Spey's Andrew Moy, he is also the owner of Tight Lines Fly Shop in NJ.

Kevin was at the Somerset show last week and Andrew's booth (Tight Lines F.S.on right) was by the consession stand.

From Spey Nation II this photo is of Andrew presenting a casting demonstration.

It is also the Fly Shop that I shop at, and I have taken a goodly number of spey casting lessons from Andrew.

I have yet to see anyone cast so fluently as Andrew, it is like breathing, natural.

If you would like any information from Andrew, instead of a cold phone call let me know and I would be more than happy to speak to him.

Spey claves are wicked fun and a good way to get your foot in the door of 2-handed rods. I'm Alaska-bound this summer so I most likely will not be able to attend but I could if I would. The upper andro or some spots on the west branch would be a kickass place to have it though.

This topic was started January 2010. Is there any interest in doing a local Two Handed Clave this spring (2012). After watching casting DVDs, I'll be ready for some on the water practice.

I'd be way up for a Maine spey-clave! Even if it's just a bunch of guys meeting up to throw a few lines and flies around, it could be fun. Mac Lord, a member of the FFF Board of Governors and certified spey casting instructor, lives in Brunswick, and Topher Browne (you may have seen him in "Spey to Z"), a nationally ranked caster, also lives in the area. It doesn't take much to get those guys onto the water for some casting.

Fish responsibly.  Get all your steelhead Speyed.

There is a great opportunity tomorrow, May 5, at the New England Spey Clave on the Farmington River in CT. A lot of work has gone into getting manufacturers, reps, and demonstrators to come to the clave. See the current posting in this section.

I'm all for a Maine Spey Clave sometime soon. I know Eldredge Brothers is having their Spey class soon. EO would be a great spot for some spey fishing.

About Kevin McKay and Maine Fly Fish
My name is Kevin McKay and I became a Master Maine Guide in 2003. But before that I started www.maineflyfish.com, one of the largest fly fishing web sites on the east coast. It is dedicated to helping everyone who is new and experienced, to bring out their best when it comes to fly fishing. So it was only natural I became a guide and I haven't looked back.
