RE:FIRST ANNUAL INDOOR CASTING CLAVE!!!

Great! Lucky 13... think about recruiting people you know who might want to learn how to cast. This will be a great forum for working out a few kinks too, for those who already have a working cast but might want to tune it up. It's good for all levels, everyone needs to work up to seasonal form and the timings perfect.

Considering that people will bring an average of 3 rods each (no limit) we are already talking 45-50 rods to sample thus far. Two-handers? There will be at least four if not more.

We'll have some fun contests too - prize givaways, etc. It'll be a great time!

Juro,

I will bring both my two handed rods along - 15' (11/12 wt) and 12' (9 / 10wt)- the actions are "traditional spey" but I'd be interested in your thoughts. I haven't had them out of the bags for about four years and I need to replace one of the rings on "big bertha" - should be very interesting.

RE:FIRST ANNUAL INDOOR CASTING CLAVE!!!

Sounds great Adrian! The facility (which I understand is gargantuan) is lined with an athletic foam surface. If there is any surface area where one could 'get a grip' then I could tie up a grass leader so we could play Spey games. The place is certainly big enough.

In any case, it will be good to bring the traditional Spey rods if for no other reason than to let everyone feel the difference between overhand and Spey actions.

The more rod varieties the merrier!
