Thumbs up Friday SpeyClave - Fall City!

spey casting clave!
Fall City, WA




Due to a number of factors, the Spey Clave location will be at Fall City on the Snoqualmie River just off Route 90, which is arguably the closest peice of Spey casting water to Meydenbauer.

Directions:

From Meydenbauer take Route 495 South to I-90 East, a mile or two (it comes up quickly!)

Stay on I-90 east past Issaquah (large group of many, many stores)

Go up a steep hill and take the Fall City exit at the top of the hill

Turn left back over the highway, then right at the corner (gas station, general store side of the road)

Stay on Preston-Fall City Road down the windy hill a few miles and you will come to Fall City.

Just before the bridge, turn left and you'll see the claver's parked along the river.

If you do go onto the bridge you won't be able to miss us casting on both sides!

It has been awhile since I have been up there but can you park behind the dinner any more? i think they turned it to a u-store place and there is a fence. I think you have to park alog the main road and use the boat ramp for access.

Wow, times they are a' changin! We can also take the campground road and park in the large lot above the Raging but if the water's high we'll have a heck of a time crossing to get downriver :hehe:

Of course if it's low, we just expanded the area dramatically and got some quality parking space added too.

I wonder if we could park along David Powell? That would be ideal.

No, Nobuo will bring the CND rods!

The master himself Nobuo Nodera will be in attendance at the Clave and the Seattle Show and I'm thinking he might bring along a rod or two for us to cast.

I'll bring a few Loops and some of the shooting head systems!

Juro,

This is a great location. I had forgotten how much water and parking was available in Fall City until you reminded me in your post on a different thread on where to locate the Friday Clave.

Mini-clinic to kick off the clave

I'll be kicking things off at the start of the clave with a presentation "Improving your Spey Casts" which will discuss rod loading and casting efficiency, two keys to improved casting for anyone whether you're using shooting heads or extended belly lines.

Looking forward to seeing everyone there!

I was amazed at watching the efficiency of which you cast at the last Clave
Having watched a lot of people over the years we become accustom norm, which may not always be correct.
I for one will be looking forward to learning more on the use of the Speyrod.
I would like to try the underhand cast also for I think you should experience every aspect of the Craft.

I am looking forward to having fun.
We will not have very far to walk to the pub if the we get dry.

And that ain't until the 22 and 23 of the month. Just asking, As they seen to keep getting farther and farther away from where the first one was.

Hi Jim,

I guess it depends on your perspective. Not sure which get together you regard as "the first one" since the tradition of getting together to cast spey rods in the greater Puget Sound area goes back at least 10-12 years, but assuming you're talking about recent activity at Carnation this new locale is a lot easier for someone coming into town for the flyfishing show. Also, both the ballpark bar and the Raging side should be usable for casting.

Picnic benches lining the road, plenty of free parking by the river, amenities, etc. Now all we need is decent weather and river levels!

I'm sure after the show rolls out of town our friend Aaron will hold regular casting gatherings at Carnation, I certainly hope so anyway. But the flyshow clave will be much better off in Fall City.

See you there!

Not that one but the one before that. It had started out from a different web site and it was held at the Ben Howard boat launch on the Skykomish. It seems that someone else took the ball and went their way with it. No I don't think that you will see me there as it just seems to go farther south each time its held. To get there from my house is almost 60 miles. I can get all the instruction I want from my buddies that Spey fish.

sorry to hear you can't make it, Jim!

Next to hooking a steelhead and casting a new rod for the first time, Spey Claves are pretty much the most fun you can have with your waders on!

I'm thinking that if I put one of those rods in my hands and I enjoy it. I'll want to buy one. I have a few rods that fit my needs now and I don't think the little woman would let me get another one. Besides most of the rivers that I fish only require a single hander. The only big river that I fish is the Sky and I can almost reach the other side of the Stilly except in the wider spots. I just can't lay out the bucks now.

Jim

Fall City

This sounds like a great opportunity to meet a lot of new people and try out different gear. I was considering going up to the show on Saturday- perhaps I could get away a day early.

Anyway, two questions...

Anyone headed up north from the Vancouver,WA area for this?

Any suggestions for a cost effective place to stay on Friday night?

Thanks

Dal
