Grand River Spey has announced the dates as well as instructors and pro staff that will be present at the Spring 2009 Grand River Spey Clave. Past claves have had the honors of being host to such certified casting instructors as Neil Houlding and Courtney Ogilvie as well as streamside sessions with fly fishing pro’s Rick Kustich and Peter Charles.
There will be free hands-on instruction by the presenters and experienced casters for anyone interested. All you have to do is ask. This will be a great time to try out some of the latest gear and test drive what might be your next rod or line purchase. These Claves are for all fly fisherman or or those who want to be! It’s fun and free;it does not get any better then that.
Get ready for it folks. This will be the third Grand River Spey Clave held at Bean Park in Paris. The event is growing with each one, and its not something to be missed!
