Gearfest '2000

<font color="006060"><font size="1">When I was just entering the work force, and ol' timer told me to slow down a very amusing way. He said "two bulls are on top of a hill, looking down at the valley full of cows. The young one says "let's run down and have us one of those cows!". The old one calmly says "let's walk down and have 'em all."</font><!--2--></font><!--color-->

<font size="4">I</font><!--4-->n the spirit of trying everything before committing, I propose that we add a dimension to the claves and outings we have this year. When Spey rods were becoming popular in the PNW, Clearwater Angler hosted a Speyfest of sorts on a local river. Everyone brought their setups, and everyone got to try each other's rods and lines. In one day, I would learn as much about the different offerings as I would in a whole season.

This is a common practice between buddies, but I'd like to suggest that we allocate some time during every clave to try each other's gear out. The first opportunity will be in the North Cascades Native Steely Clave, March 30 - April 5th involving Spey rods and lines. (I just couldn't resist, and can't wait to get there!)

The next opportunity after that will be at Terry's Cape Cod Clave in May. After that will be Monomoy in June. The two-handers will be done by then, adding an additional rod to the mix. August will be the multi-BB event of the year BONECLAVE '2000 ! (I hope this event will bridge all New England websites and bulletin boards into one meeting!)

I will ask rod, reel and line manufacturers to consider promotion of their goods at these events, in other words bring their stuff so we can try them out in the field. (Some have been responding already) If things work out, we'll have a lot to sample!

(Tell any and all reps that you know you'd like them to support us)
