Claves

It is time to start planning next years' claves? Fishing season is only 150 days away!

RE:Claves

Nate,

I don't know if you're kidding or not, but we did have a few discussions at the end of the season about how we could do some off-season work to be better prepaired for Claves as they come up

First of all, we pretty much know where & approximately when ALL of the Claves are
(1) Bass River, Early May (Terry am I being presumptuous, or is this now an annual teadition)
(2) Monomoy, Late May - Septmber (30X)
(3) Wackey, Late Aug. or Early Sept.
(4) Outer Cape, Mid-Late Oct.
(5) Rhodey, Late Oct or Early Nov.
(6) I think a formal N. Shore Clave should be added!

First & Foremost we should try to do a lot of research, information gathering & organization offseason. This would prevent or info-meister (Al D.) from going sleepless for a week or two before each Clave. This would include, but is not limited to: Maps, Directions, Food, Lodging, Resturants, Organization of Camp gear (Pots, Pans, Stoves, grills, tables tarps, etc.), Tides, weather, Web-cams, sign-up sheets, etc.

Like everything else on this board, these things should be done on a volunteer basis.

I am planning on doing some research when the dead of winter comes around. For example, By spring I will have memorized all of the 2001 AM Minus Tides for Chatham Light! I just have a feeling that this might be useful information.

RE:Claves

Re: Bass River II, things not looking good. The house has passed to my brother and he will begin construction on it between now and then. I'm also pretty sure that next season will find me striking a better, shall we say, "balance" between my home life and shall we say, "All out obsessive, compulsive, quest to the ends of the earth for the elusive and most awesome striper with awesome group of pals!!!"
I'm basically going to cool it next year. It was a fun year 2000 though. And until my kids are nearing college age, it will help to sustain me through memories.
And...next year....Trout. (shhhh...6lb rainbows in the Millers ya know...)

Greg -

You promised! What about Aero-Clave? Is that still in the air? Will it ever get off the ground?

RE:Claves

Hey Juro --

Make sure you archive this thread...especially the part where
Terry said he's "gonna cool it next year"......

it's easy to say now, but wait until things heat up next spring
and we've gone a few more months with nothing but photos & memories
(I don't count harassing holdovers) to help ease the passage of
time...

RE:Claves

After drooling over Grego's aerials, I have to think it's time for the skydiving clave- w/ fly gear of course Imagine, flying over promising water, seeing schools of big fish, and.....................

I mean, if the tuna guys can spot 'em from the air...

RE:Claves

I had a conversation with someone about float planes this morning... Colby are you readin' this? [img]http://216.71.206.188/images/flytalk/Wilk.gif" border="0" align="middle">

As usual, the possibilities are endless.

I agree with Terry, we should look to more sweetwater in 2001. I'd like to get to the Gaspe or Nova Scotia too. Please consider NEC 2001 in the Adirondacks with a pike clave mixed in to rendezvous with Luis and the FLYFISH@ mail list gang.

We FORUM members are hosting NEC 2002 on Cape Cod - the Salty Clave. The attendance on one of these claves can be huge. It's the Woodstock of flyfishing <img src="http://216.71.206.188/images/flytalk/Wilk.gif[/img]

GregO - what about Nate Smith's first annual CAROLINA CLAVE???? Gotta do it!

RE: Bass River II

I am working on getting use for us of a small cottage VERY close to the Bass River where we can basically use the cottage as our dining hall & bath house & pitch tents in the yard.

Remember the Monomoy Clave? Post meal, lounging, sleeping, drinking fly rodders when someone asked "Doesn't the tide turn in 1/2 an hour?"
Late-comers to the camp site found food everywhere, raccoons having a buffet, money & fly tying gear left on the table.....

Ah, those were the days.

RE:Claves

Ok, I admit it. As soon as I reread my post I thought "ya sure..am I transparent!" Well it was a good attempt at reckoning with the level of away time I had in 2000. Keeping things in balance is high on my agenda for 2001.

RE:Claves

How about a Beaverkill clave? A truly historic water with lots of fish and beautiful scenery and from a purely personal point of view it is where I took some of my first casts with a fly rod.

There is a nice campground on the upper reaches of the Beaverkill that is within an easy driving distance of the Beaverkill main stem, the Willowomac, the East Branch of the Delaware, and at a stretch the West Branch of the Delaware. I have not visited it but there is also a fly fishing museum in the area.

For some idea about what it can be like see my post from August.

RE:Claves

That's good to hear Terry... we all can at times can be struck with fits of temporary insanity which can take the form of literary outbursts which can shock readers who know of your dedication to fishing pursuits.(just kidding)

RE:Claves

TinMan,

I agree, but to be perfectly honest I have not yet fished Joppa. Many people claim that Joppa is one of the most consistently good spots around. However, I would also argue that Joppa is only the tip of the the N. Shore Iceberg!
