Just received this link from Beulah Fly Rods: seems Juro will be co-hosting a surf casting clinic: WTpLEb10frJDfAP7Z2qIlV7YqTz8ij8fc9cGS7fRzrDs4MA9G2 nWMM88vwIWj40cTwVnKsjOg%3D%3D

Juro, since I have only been on the Cape for the spring striper clave, where is this going to be for those of us unfamiliar with the Cape? Parking going to be a problem?

Joe....parking not an issue. re Beulah rods...I know that Pete has one and loves it...I have their blue water 10/11 is a cannon and easy to cast...has the feel of a 10wt when casting but the lower 11wt section can really handle fish in the surf and or help on windy days.
I only have one of their rods, so the following endorsement should be taken as such:
- rod is very reasonably priced and as good if not better than my Orvis and Sage rods
- mine came with an extra tip for no charge (have never needed it in 3 yrs)
- most impressive IMHO is how responsive and helpful the company reps are if you need to call them. I called when I 1st got the rod for line recommendations...they were informative and spot on........10wt for fast sink and 11wt for floating and intermediate.
They impressed me as does their rod!
PS: No...I don't work for them, just impressed :)

They make great rods and also lines that are matched to bring the best from the blanks. Jim Shaunessy lives and breathes flyfishing and it shows in his company philosophy and product line. Bears Den is one of the true hardcore flyfishing stores in the entire region and it will be good to see Scott.

We are going to gather at the Monomoy Wildlife Refuge which provides access to fishermen (birders and other lovers of wildlife) at no charge as part of the federal parks program. Nice to see our tax dollars working for us for a change :)

A short stroll will bring us to a great area where a high bluff and corp of engineer boulders protect a narrow beach and I planned for the water to be moving "river left".

We can't predict the wind but if it's prevailing S/SW or N/NW we're good. As in fishing, anything with an "E" in it will be trouble for Cape Codders.

It's possible that we will do a Rip Trip that weekend - a perfect venue for two-handers and fast sinking lines with high grain weights. This depends on the number of people who enroll, currently about half full.

If you are attending the clinic and would like to experience the Monomoy Rip, let me know and I will talk to Capt. Keith about booking it.

Also for those who already have high grain two-handed outfits there is a nearby venue for dawn fishing with giant bangers that has been producing some real pigs lately. Let me know if you're interested in joining the two-handed gang on that dawn brigade.

more later...

Please put me down for the whole deal--the two handed casting clinic, dawn patrol and Rips Trip. I have yet to make it down to the Cape this year and this looks like an excellent reason to get it on the calendar. Thanks.

I'm interested in attending the w/e festivities how does one enroll in the rip trip,when and where is the morning excursion Saturday ? Other than the mentioning of it in this thread I can't find it no where else.

Keith responded to my request for that Sunday but it's already booked so no Rip Trip on Sunday 7th.

For those who show up Sat I'm certain we can provide some good options for those staying to fish Sunday.

Night stripers in skinny water?

Joe- I'm headed down there on Saturday afternoon with my kids for a few days, staying at my buddy's house on Stage Island.

How's the back doing? I was using my 11' 2" scando on the West Branch last weekend skating bombers- good fun.:smile:

Juro- will there be a Squire gathering?

08-04-2011, 12:13 PM
Oh definitely - Sat night after the event we should get dinner and a couple of brews. I'll bet Jim and Eric will be up for it too!

We can discuss Sunday angling options for mid-day lows.

We're doing the clambake thing on Harding's Sat. night, but I might come in later. I hope to be fishing more this trip and boat driving less.

I'm sorry to miss this one but its the Martin Guitar festival in Narareth Pa this week-end and that has become an annual pilgrimage. Looking forward to reports :)

I would haved liked to make this one, but the folks are up from NC so I'll be heading to S. Maine for a visit.
