Last weekend the Long Beach Casting Club had its first Spey Casting Tournament.  I spent a few hours watching the women and men finalist cast, and it was a fun few hours.  Poppy and Mrs. Cummins were there sharing some of their wares and expertise.  I have benefited from Poppy's contributions to various blogs, and I liked thanking him in person.

Although it was a spey gig, what I enjoyed most was casting a couple of Poppy's bamboo rods, especially the 8ft 6 wt.  I don't normally fish bamboo, although that is what I started with, but I do fish more medium action graphite like Scott G series and Sage LL rods. When I cast the 6wt  bamboo, it seemed to form effortless straight well formed loops.  I see one in my future.
