May 16, 2014   //   by Geoff Schaake   //   Cack Handed, Mojo, Raffle Prizes  //  Comments Off on Free Fishing Day in the DSR to Spey Nation Attendees!

Taking our advice and making a weekend out of Spey Nation?  Friday night Film Tour at the Tailwater Lodge, Spey Nation at the Pineville Boat launch on Saturday and for the capper, Fishing the Douglaston Salmon Run Sunday for FREE!

The DSR will be allowing all Spey Nation participants access to the DSR on Sunday, June 22nd. Participants will be asked to pickup a voucher from the Spey nation event on Saturday as proof of participation and present it at the DSR for their complimentary access pass on Sunday.  Of course it’s off season but hey, if you’ve never seen the tasty pockets and smooth swingable slicks of the run then this would be a great time to walk the bank.  And you never know when something nasty is going to nose out of the estruary and into the currents of the lower river.  Word even has it that they are stocking browns this year.

Besides, at least it won’t look like this

There will also be 2 daily passes up for grabs in our raffles on Saturday to be used Nov 15, 2014 – May 14, 2015.

 

Mystic Outdoors Support to the Nation Greatly Appreciated

Apr 23, 2014   //   by Geoff Schaake   //   Cack Handed, Like Minded Mofos, Mojo, Raffle Prizes, Spey Nation Supporters  //  Comments Off on Mystic Outdoors Support to the Nation Greatly Appreciated

mystic2Join us at Spey Nation on June 21, 2014 and you may be heading home with this little beauty.  Perfect for throwing streamers to your local trout and smallmouth bass.  Up for grabs is the

Mystic 11’3″ Switch rod 5wt 4pc

The M-Series Switch Fly Rods are designed to provide versatility while afield.  They target big fish in medium to big water and allow for traditional casts or spey casts for swing fishing.  These diverse rods utilize the same high-grade materials and components used in our standard M-Series rods but are built to our specifications for length and tapper and perform to a medium-fast action.

Check out Mystic Outdoors for all their great rods.  I hear the musky sizes are killers.  Dennis and family have been with us since they started making 2 handed rods.  I have their 3 wt switch and it quickly became one of my favorites.

Here is a sample list of what may appear in that box this year.
