Spey Nation 2012 - Pulaski, NY

I made my second trip to the spey clave in Pulaski last weekend. It was a great time. I was able to get Lisa to come along so we headed up on Thursday morning  not only for the clave but also to explore the river in anticipation of steelhead season this winter.

There were eight presentations secheduled for the day so we brought two chairs and plunked 'em down and waited. The casting presentations by Simon and Tohper were great fun to watch and very informative. I was glad that I brought along my camera for some videos because I sure can't remember all that they said; but the best part was being able to follow what they were discussing.

After the clave was over Lisa and I put on our wet wading gear and headed to the river to try out some of the methods they had demonstrated. For the next hour or so we had a great time casting and I know I can't wait to get back on the Farmy to keep practicing and fishing.

There was a raffle later that afternoon with the proceeds going to the Fish Creek Atlantic Salmon Club. There were some really nice prizes that we put in for and  I ended up winning a couple of T-shirts.  Lisa, on the other hand, had a really good time at the raffle. She won a reel as well as a complete rod package from the Red Shed in Peck, Idaho.
