: South County Spey and 2-Hander Event

10-23-2003, 07:36 PM
CND and Saltwater Edge will be hosting a Spey and two-handed fly casting event at Quonny Breachway (Quonochontaug, Rhode Island) Saturday Oct. 25th during the slack tide (2-4pm). Fish the South County's fall migratory blitzes in the AM and stop by the breachway in the afternoon for free lessons and try them out for yourself!

Demystify the spey casting hubbub with a free casting lesson - learn how to do it and why it's useful. Rods will be ready to try including the Atlantis beach flyrods.

Charge up for the evening bite with snacks and drinks (provided).

Don't miss a chance for a great day before the season ends!

Directions: Quonny Breachway (

Follow the signs to the breachway, then down to the boat launch at the end of the road. There is a long sandbar there where many people can wade out and there is plenty of room to cast. Typically fish push in with the flood in the evening so you might not even have to move to get into some fish!

I assume this takes you out of the fishing equation on Saturday in South County??? Have not heard back from you so I am assuming?? that you will not be able to join me out on the boat? No problem I will still be up there fishing anyway. Hope the clinic goes well and you all catch many finned critters:D

Damn, I just looked at the map-that is nearly in CT!

I plan to attend anyways. If anyone knows the area and would like to get together in the morning to fish, I have a 2-hander you can use.

Is anyone going to fish early. I was thinking of Watch Hill or Napatree. What d you think.

10-24-2003, 01:00 PM
Sent you a PM, not sure it made it.
Please check.

I'll most likely be at Watch Hill light predawn. Tall guy, camo field jacket, carrying a fly rod and a surf rod [sorry Juro].
Unless they're blitzing at the lighthouse, I'll be hanging around Weakapoug/overlook/fire district beach later in the morning. If nothing's happening there, I'll most likely be somewhere in Weakapoug channel with my dip nets.

I'll be by Quonnie around 2:00 to check out the two handers. Might have to bring a special fly to cast.

Wish I could be there. Been waiting for this event.

Unfortunately, I'll be at my second funeral in as many weeks. Needless to say, it's been a tough couple of weeks.

Time on the water is just what I need right now.

Hope everything goes well!

Hang in there buddy, sorry to hear about your losses. :(

I for one will give you and your family some quality silent time on the water in rememberance for the loved ones you have lost. The water is my church and I will be praying while fishing, my sincerest sympathies go out to you and your family. And there is no better tonic than time on the water to help put things in to a clear perspective. I hope you get out soon buddy and keep the faith things have got to be all up hill from here.
