Survey Responses and Rumors

Sep 16, 2011   //   by Geoff Schaake   //   Cack Handed, Like Minded Mofos, Spey Nation Presenter  //  Comments Off on Survey Responses and Rumors

Just wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who took the Spey Nation survey last month. It’s incredibly humbling to hear some of the positive thoughts that came out of the comment section. One of the themes from that section are that you all look forward to seeing old friends and making new one at Spey Nation. That’s one of the reasons I do this, the connections I make with you all. For that, I wanted to send out my sincerest thanks.

For the suggestion sections, that helps even more. We (Dave and I) have compiled all the great suggestions and are working on a way to make as many of those come true as possible. As with everything that comes with Spey Nation, we want to make it the best we can. Many have expressed interest in inviting more companies to attend. On that note, we have, and continue to have a letter and email campaign to those companies we find that would be appropriate to attend Spey Nation. I invite you all, as I know we all make phone calls to our favorite companies throughout the year about lines and such, to extend an open invite to anybody you would like to see come. The more the merrier and everybody benefits. Just send me an email with contact info if they would like to receive one of my many coveted email invites! Chances are they have heard from us, but you never know. It’s true that Spey Nation has it’s leadership and they help me immensely, but we’re all part of the machine and it will evolve into what we make of it.

A number of years ago, there was a rumor flying through the crowd that G. Gordon Liddy had been spotted by The Nation and was in attendance. That was never confirmed nor disproved.

This year, I”ve heard an even more absurd tale bubbling up from the undercurrents of the Salmon…Tim Rajeff…

Spey Nation Presenter Profile: Peter Charles

Jun 5, 2011   //   by Geoff Schaake   //   Cack Handed, Spey Nation Presenter  //  Comments Off on Spey Nation Presenter Profile: Peter Charles

About Peter Charles

Probably the best way to describe Peter’s approach to fishing, it is that of a passionate analyst. He has a fervent interest in all aspects of the sport, from lines, to casting, flies, presentation, to the biology of fish and the hydrodynamics of the world they live in. He caught his first fish on a fly in 1969 and has been hooked by the sport ever since.

He has poured his experience, his analytical approach, and his passion into his extensive website at www.hooked4life.ca.

Peter pioneered the use of the Scandinavian technique to catch Great Lakes steelhead and salmon. Through his website, teaching, demonstrations and writing he has been instrumental in spreading this method throughout the Great Lakes region and Canada in general.

Peter is currently pro staff for Scott MacKenzie DTX rods out of the UK. He has also been both a fly fishing sales representative and a pro staff for a Scandinavian fly fishing company.

Peter will be presenting:

Distance Casting for the Average Spey Caster

Distance casting gets a bad rap as it’s often associated more with big egos than fishing.    The old golf expression about, “Drive for show, putt for dough.” seems to fit the attitude most take to distance casting.

Yet the simple fact is — the ability to distance farther has many benefits, including catching more fish.  We should develop our distance casting abilities, not for ego gratification nor for competition, but rather to effectively and easily deal with common fishing situations.

Being able to distance cast with low effort lets the older angler to make distance casts without blowing out old shoulders.  Being able to distance casting makes for easy sharply angled downstream presentations needed to achieve a very slow swing in cold water.  It may eliminate our need to wade deep, or when we have to, distance casting still lets us get a decent amount of line out.  On those days when only average distances are needed, the same casting technique makes for low fatigue, low stress outings.

Scott Mackenzie is a former three time world Spey casting champion and he developed a style of casting suitable for chucking long lines on big rods, to cover the big distances needed to fish the lies on the broad River Ness.  My session will cover the Mackenzie style of casting and how it can be adapted to shorter rods and lines to fish our rivers.  The Mackenzie style cast lets the average Spey caster achieve 100’+ casts using short head and mid-belly lines on rods in the 12‘-14′ range, without blowing up our shoulders or exhausting ourselves.

About Neil

Fly-fishing has always been Neil Houlding’s life long pursuit. By 18 years of age, Neil’s passion for a two-hand rod had already begun to coalesce.  He spent many hours honing his skills on rivers such as the Lune and Ribble not far from his home in Lancashire, England.  Moving to Canada, he continued his pursuit of fishing the fly.
