I tell this story all the time about Poppy

May 29, 2015   //   by Geoff Schaake   //   Cack Handed, Like Minded Mofos, Mojo, Raffle Prizes  //  Comments Off on I tell this story all the time about Poppy

Back when Spey Nation was an idea, in fact I don’t think we had come up with the name yet, I received a phone call from Peck, ID.  The voice on the other line asked if we could use a donation to help support our clave.  Of course we accepted and a short time later I recieved a package in the mail, which we promptly gave away at our first gathering.  Since 2008, Poppy has come through every year outfitting one of us with a lot of spey equipment.  The Red Shed Fly Shop is the exclusive dealer for Gaelforce Lines   So, since he has something to talk about and promote, this year to join our festivities.

Poppy came out to Spey Nation last year for the first time and he and Mrs. Red Shed must have liked what they saw because they are planning the cross country drive again to answer all you questions.   Can’t wait to see our friends again!

In case you missed the video,

Poppy is also donating an Abel Spey reel
