May 18, 19, 20 there will be a number of "on-the-water" casting/fishing programs each day

The plan is to provide a weekend that will entertain and inform you.
If you are interested in meeting other steelhead Spey fishers and hope to learn a lot about Spey casting and more about steelhead fishing, the Sandy River Spey Clave is for you.  The  event  will start at Oxbow Park on  Friday morning  the  17th  of May  and  conclude  on Sunday 19th.  Exhibitors may set up on Thursday May 16. 

This  time of  year there  should be plenty  of Summer  Steelhead.  Most years it  is  also the peak of the  Spring Chinook  run.
The  days are long and  the  weather is warm.   
This event was first proposed by The International Spey Page and Discussion Group.
If you are interested in Spey rod casting and fishing, we would strongly recommend that you join this warm friendly group.
