Love when we receive emails like the one we just received from Walt Geryk, the Spey Doctor.

Don’t forget to add Fenwick to the list. I will have them available at my venue this year to go along with Hardy products.

I will have the new fenwick switch and spey rods as well as the new hardy switches as they are being unpackaged as i type. When i find out the sizes i will let you know.

We always welcome new companies into the fold here at Spey Nation.  And we have a bunch for you next year.  Loop USA, Seele Fly Rods, etc.  We really get excited if those new companies are new themselves.  And if those new companies that are new happen to be local?  Well then you just described Stream Walker Nets.  These hand crafted nets are made near Rochester NY and boast ingredients like American Black Walnut, Eco-clear Soft Plastic Net bags, and Curly Maple.

These nets are designed and built by Leif Mermagen and he will have his handiwork on display at Spey Nation 2015.  So when you get a chance, head on over to their website and check out all the natural wood goodness.

Word is, they’ll be some to take home to a lucky raffle ticket holder on June 27, 2015.

As we plan Spey Nation 2015, we’d love to hear what you would like to see Friday night June 26th, 2015.  We have the room at the Tailwater Lodge and even though the Film Tour turnout was spectacular, we have other ideas as well.  It’s your chance to tell us what you would like to see.  As you know, Spey Nation is developed, planned and run by volunteers, we can essentially change anything we want. So please take a few minutes to answer this 1question. It will help us greatly as we go about our business.  Otherwise we’ll just do what we want.

Thanks and can’t wait to see you guys next year!


We love steelhead rivers, and this one is ours. We want it to be the best one it can be. People who go to Spey Nation talk about concepts like streamside etiquette, conservation, returning Atlantic Salmon to historical watersheds, and angler rotation…and we share our knowledge to everyone who listens on this special day. Spey Nation is a spey clave that offers the unique opportunity for enthusiasts and manufacturers of 2 handed rods to gather in a streamside setting. The Location is the Pineville Boat Launch on the Salmon River in Pineville, NY but it only lives through our actions
