Had a great time at the clave as well. Thanks Jonathon for all your effort! Sorry, Charlie, but I wasn't able to stay for your presentation.

Absolutely AWESOME time at the Salmon River Clave! Great meeting so many faces to the names we see online.

Special kudos to Gillie who orchestrated this event; and the LOSA barbeque was out of this world. We should all take time to express our gratitude to the DSR who hosted this event, man what a first class operation.

I'll be putting up an image gallery shortly, if you have good pics let me know.

Thanks to everyone who attended and made it a great event. the turnout was great and that's what made it such a good time. the presenters were top notch to say the least, giving us an amazing range of perspectives and styles. everyone involved deserves a great big thank you. most of all we should thank Jonathan (Gillie) for comming up with the idea and pulling it off so well simply with effort, determination and tons of his own time. this was a real boost to the traditional methods idea for the great lakes steelhead fishery. i couldn't have imagined it going any better. here's a look at the turnout with Juro up and throwing big pointy d's.

That was fun. Juro banging out big casts with a few Bald Eagles fishing just down stream from him, who could ask for more. Big thanks to Jonathan (Gillie) for organizing the event. It was very well done. Met some great people, a few of which I just know are going to be great new friends. The presentations and venders with there new equipment were fantastic.

And just when I think I am getting good at this crap I have to sit down and watch guys like Juro and Andrew Moy just playing around with a new rod and line combo. Very humbling, Juro gets better every time I see him. And Andy Murray goes without saying. And the other guys Neil Houlding, Rick Whorwood, Ted Lewis and Rick Kustich, all top of the line.

Charlie

P.S. Thanks for hooking me up with that skin Andrew; I owe you a few flies when I get it died up.

I agree, all presentations were great. And Charlie your slideshow was awesome too. Thanks for sharing it with us...man that Gaspe looks like one beautiful collection of rivers. It's been said before but I'll say it again..thx for Gillie for all the work. Hopefully this will only be the first of many salmon river claves.

My apologies

I'd like to apologize for my incompetence on Saturday afternoon. I'm not going to make excuses, other then I choked. It was by far the most embarrassing moment of my life. Hopefully I'll get the opportunity to redeem myself at the next clave.

It was great to see some of the people I know and meet some new faces. The other presenters were incredible. It was a lot of fun to watch and listen to them.

Thanks LOSA for the great food and a special thanks to Jonathon for putting it all together and giving me the opportunity to present. Once again, I'm sorry for not coming through.

Charlie - Thank you! I'm looking forward to seeing those flies! Sorry I missed your slide show.

Andrew

Drew -

I admire the candor in your post - but unlike the community here I saw you first-hand feeling very ill at o'dark thirty in the SR lodge living room getting zero sleep after a long day at work, making the drive, etc. There was more than just butterflies you were dealing with and I am surprised you toughed it out as long as you did.

I for one appreciate the effort you made to get there on the claver's behalf, and one day does not even make a dent in the years you've spent sharing your exceptional casting and teaching skills with your friends and customers.

Many better days to come bro,

Juro
