April 20-22: Spey-O-Rama
All this week at the Golden Gate Casting Ponds. This is the world championship of spey casting. The event takes place Friday through Sunday. Stop by on Friday and Saturday to check out and demo some of the latest equipment and gear in the spey fishing industry. Saturday is the qualifying round for the competitors and Sunday is the finals. There will also be various casting demonstrations and presentations on all things spey. We are going to try and make it down there on Friday to say hi to some close friends and take a few photos. Here is a link to the schedule of events…
Saturday April 21st Kiene’s Fly Shop Expo:
Kiene’s Fly Shop will hold their annual fly-fishing expo from 9am – 5pm. This is a great event that features casting demos, fly-tying, travel presentations, and the top manufacturers and reps in the industry. Stop by and try the newest in fly rods and lines and enter to win various raffle prizes. Free hot dogs and sodas to all that attend.
I will be doing tube fly demos in the shop for those interested in learning how to tie and rig tube flies. We will go over various tube systems and techniques for tying modern day tube flies. Stop by and check out various steelhead, salmon, and trout tube fly patterns tied by Idylwilde fly tier Jason Hartwick. We might even have a few freebies to give away!
