    Hey guys –

    I’m going to be giving a three-part seminar on Saturday, Dec. 18, at Little River Outfitters in Townsend, Tennessee.  That’s a week from this coming Saturday.

    I think the thing starts at 10AM and goes through 2PM.

    The first part of the seminar will be on single-hand spey casting, which is really useful especially while nymphing in area tailwaters.  I’ll give demonstrations and lessons out on the lawn if it’s not actually snowing, so bring a practice rod and reel with you.  First we’ll go over the basics of spey casting, then I’ll be teaching the Snake Roll, the Double Spey, and the Snap-T outside (all of which can be shown on grass).

    The second presentation will likely begin around 11:30 and it’s going to be on fly fishing photography with a special eye toward the Smokies.  I spent a lot of time shooting in that area and have written articles about it and used photos from those shoots on several occasions. We’ll discuss topics like how to get a slow water shot, the unusually green light in the forest and how to use it, macro opportunities in the Park, and shooting locations throughout the year to maximize a photo outing.

    Finally, starting at about 12:30 and continuing through 2:00, I’ll demonstrate silly putty spoon flies and have a general question and answer session about anything people want to bring up.

    Hope to see you there and tell your friends.

    Zach

    For those of us that are not local, you ought to hook up with someone with a decent video camera and make a couple flicks.

    Been interested in spey for a while now, just don’t know anyone around here that does it.
