Our rescheduled January Spey clinic took place in some Chilly conditions on Saturday. As you can see in the image above, plenty of ice in those snake guides. Plenty. Despite the fridgid temperatures, we had a full house and no whiners. Although a few folks – say 80% – did not stick out the casting until the end. That includes me. A terrifying north wind of about 10MPH showed up and conditions went from damn cold to too damn cold in a hurry.
While it was too cold to enjoy and practice casting for more than a couple of hours, we had an excellent group. The rookies did a great job and picked it up quickly. We had some experienced caster as well, and it’s always fun to work on some more advanced tweaks with them. The light – but fridgid – upstream wind meant it was a right shoulder day for casting. Everyone enjoys that.
We have two more clinics coming up in Feb and March, as well as the Mike McCune/Whitney Gould clinics at the end of April. Hopefully we won’t need our electric socks for those ones.
Thanks to all who participated in last weekends Spey clinic. Good swinging!
These two were the last to leave, and take away the “Tough Guy” award for this weekend. Congratulations!
I hope we didn’t leave that rod laying in the snow?
