    Where do you fish?

    I would be most interested in a brief description of Team Speycast members' favourite salmon rivers/beats.

    We will put this question to the team. Eoin is very busy with 'Tweed' matters until the end of the month and you will find things will start to move more quickly on here once he has the time to focus on the forum etc.

    Thanks for your support and interest and we are fully committted to develop this into a very busy site and forum

    John,

    Many thanks for your mail and support of Speycast. With a working life in fly fishing, I'm very fortunate to travel to various destinations including Russia, Patagonia, Scandinavia and Florida. This often can be work related i.e. hosting a group of anglers or conducting seminars and casting clinics. My favorite destination is Patagonia, were I have fished some great rivers and lakes in both Argentina and Chile. I still very much enjoy fishing the Tweed system (particularly in the backend!), but teaching commitments at my school near Kelso limit time for personal fishing.

    Best wishes

    Eoin

    Hi John

    I have to say that the Spey has my heart, and in particular Carron & Laggan and Rothes beats.....

    On a worldwide scale I'd add the Ponoi, a small river in Norway I used to fish called the Osen and also a fantastic river in Quebec called the Pabos Nord.... most beautiful!

    Just a few of my favourites, but to be honest I'd put any clean river with salmon on my list... I just love that fish!

    Cheers
    Simon

    Simon,
    I'm new to the spey game, only started last month on the Salmon River in Idaho, but I can tell already this is going to be a long lasting relationship.

    I understand you did a speyclave there a few years ago? Any plans for another?

    By the way I enjoy the RIO' speycasting dvd's you have done.

    John.

    Hi John

    Welcome to this wonderful and confusing world of spey casting! Glad to see you have started on a decent river.. where do you fish, as a matter of fact? I am usually around North Fork whenever I get time to nip over there!

    I did do a spey clave there a few years ago, and will gladly attend another one. My only requirements are that it is in season, that there are fish around and that someone would help share my hip flask of Glen Rothes..... I don't think the Salmon clave has been held for a year or two, though.

    Cheers
    Simon

    Simon,
    The fish are there in good numbers this year, a record return as I understand it.

    Being the first time on the Salmon I don't know the names of all the various runs on the river but I can tell you this, my wife caught a beautiful 33" natural buck in a deep hole just above The 4th of July.
    The area between the town of Salmon to just beyond The North Fork is the water we were fishing.

    I cannot speak for anyone else, but I think it a sin not to partake of a fine single malt when offered.

    That is true.... Nice to have rivers so full of fish!!! It has been like that on any Columbia river trib!!! You chose a great year to take up the spey game!

    I know that area pretty well as it is the nearest spot to me for steelhead! Well in on that 33"!!!

    ... and I love your single malt sentiments!

    Cheers
    Simon

    I thought maybe you were in the S/E Idaho area.

    Does anyone use their speyrod on the Southfork? or even lower on the river chasing carp? Is that acceptable to do?

    Cheers.
