 This year marks the 12th Sandy River 'Clave. To our knowledge, The Sandy River Spey Clave is the largest gathering of  Spey Casters in the Western Hemisphere. All of the best Spey Tackle manufacturers are there. The top Spey Casters in the Pacific Northwest will  give On-The-Water Presentations and will act as your personal instructors during Friday's FREE Beginner's . 
This year the Sandy River Spey Clave is totally integrated. Instead of "Ladies Day" on Friday, as in the past three Spey Claves, Friday has turned into "Beginner's Day", which focuses on introducing new anglers into the sport of Spey Fishing. Male and female Instructors/Presenters will mixed into all three days of the scheduled on-the-water programs.
Free Catered Food has been added for lunch all three days.  There will be a free booklet on “Spey casting tackle and techniques” and there is a no charge casting school at the 'Clave on Friday. We are all members of the “Spey Community.” The essence of the Sandy River Spey 'Clave is as much social as it is educational. See you there, friends.  More info...
Especially YOU Are Invited To This Party!!!
Here is a list of people who will be offering free instruction on the water.

G. Loomis took a page from their NRX blank technology to develop a new series of fly rods that "new-to-the-sport" and intermediate fly-fishers will learn to appreciate and expert anglers will wonder how this much performance gets packed into such an affordable package. A new taper design along with a noticeable weight-reduction in the upper half of the blank allows G. Loomis to make a fly rod series that is incredibly light, recovers quickly and casts with unbelievable precision. It's the G .Loomis way... reduce as much weight as possible, take total advantage of the materials and create a taper that is dynamic, efficient and user-friendly. PRO4x rods are as beautiful to look at as they are easy to cast. They come in all the right sizes to fit fisheries a widely diverse as spring creeks, farm ponds, black bass, steelhead, salmon and saltwater. These are rods any fly-fisher would be proud to own!!
Have us equip your new PRO4x rods with the highest quality lines available. Be ready for anything! Ship your reels, or buy new ones and we will load each one up with your new PRO4x Promo Fly Line and just the right amount of the right kind of backing (AT NO EXTRA CHARGE). The fly lines listed below are the best match for each rod model.

PRO4x963-4

Length: 8' Line: #3 Pieces: 4

When the conditions call for small flys, light lines and a stealthy approach, this little 8-foot beauty is just what the doctor ordered! Made to order for small creeks and streams where you don't need to cast a long ways, this rod will make even the smallest trout seem like a monster!

PRO4x1084-4 Length: 9' Line: #4 Pieces: 4

PRO4x1085-4 Length: 9' Line: #5 Pieces: 4

The best all-around size for trout on rivers, small streams and still-waters, this is a delightful casting rod with sufficient power for long-range casts yet it's still light enough to enjoy even the smaller fish.

PRO4x1207-4 Length: 10' Line: #7 Pieces: 4

This is a great rod for fishing the small to mid-sized steelhead rivers where long casts are the rule and fish control is a matter of "hanging on". It's a fun rod for summer-run steelhead, silvers, sockeye and chums… maybe an occasional small king as long as the water isn't too heavy.
