Announcing the 4th annual Colorado Cane Conclave, founded by Gary Carbaugh. This is a gathering of people who build, collect, fish and enjoy fine bamboo rods and other vintage tackle. Also an excellent opportunity for anyone who wants to try cane but has not had the chance.

WHEN: Sunday, August 2, 2009 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
WHERE: Planet Bluegrass, Lyons, Colorado
The $45 registration fee includes use of all the Planet Bluegrass facilities, seeing and casting many bamboo rods from a number of makers, a fully catered lunch, a live auction(with a professional auctioneer) of donated classic and modern tackle. Also included is fishing on approximately 1/2 mile of Planet Bluegrass' private stretch of the North St. Vrain river and the use of a table if you wish to display and/or sell any and all fishing related goodies. Bamboo rod makers are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity!
100% of the proceeds from the live auction will be split between Reel Recovery and Casting for Recovery, both cancer survivor programs so we really need more donations for the auction if you can help.
All of the details are found at South Creek, Ltd. and click on "What's New." Thanks, Gary.
I wish I could go! Sounds like a blast, and anyone with even the smallest iota of interest in fly angling and who is in reasonable distance from the event would be a fool not to attend.
