RIO Line Demo Day at GGACC Featuring Simon Gawesworth on Saturday August 27 from 9 AM - 3 PM

Tune Up Your Gear & Casting with RIO and Simon Gawesworth and GGACC

Fly lines are the most overlooked and possibly most important piece of your fly casting system.  This is true for both single-hand and Spey rods.  Discover which fly line is right for you and your rods on Saturday, August 27th at the RIO Line Demo Day at the Golden Gate Angling & Casting Club ponds in San Francisco.  Head RIO line designer and world famous casting instructor Simon Gawesworth, along with local RIO pros and members of GGACC will be on-hand with an assortment of RIO single-hand and Spey lines for you to demo on your own rods or on Sage and Redington rods that will be provided for the event.  Participants will be eligible for raffle prize drawings (must be present to win!).  All participants will receive a special discount coupon redeemable for 20% off any RIO fly line at 8 top fly shops in Northern California (see list below).  Free lunch sponsored by The Fly Shop.  The event runs from 9 AM until 3 PM and is free and open to the public.

There will be two special casting demonstrations by Simon Gawesworth:

  • 10 - 10:45 AM - Simon Gawesworth - "The Importance of Fly Lines & How Tapers Affect Their Performance"
  • 1:30 - 2:15 PM - Simon Gawesworth - "Casting Demonstration - Single handed Rods & Two-handed Spey Rods"

Remember to mark your calendars for Saturday August 27 from 9 AM - 3 PM for this very special event and be sure to bring your own rods to "test drive" all the latest RIO lines.  You are welcome to use the ponds to cast Spey lines as well so bring your waders and boots.
