Spey Nation V.2014

This past weekend Spey Nation graced the Salmon River with its presence.  There were new wrinkles and new faces.  The weather was perfect.  Had a ton of fun and got some good pictures.  Saw some amazing casters talk about and demonstrate spey casting technique.  FYI a few of the presenters were tossing single handers afterwards and throwing insane amounts of line.  The perfect technique they have for spey casting isn't the only perfect casting technique they have.  Got inspired to work on my spey and single hand casting this summer.

  1. Hi Robin, a friend mentioned they saw a photo of me on your blog (the double spey shot). I was wondering if I could use your photo on my site? Btw, nice blog and great photos! Hyun
