RIO/Sage/Redington/Simms Product Demo Day at GGACC Ponds Featuring Simon Gawesworth on Saturday, August 25, from 9 AM - 3 PM

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

Fly lines are the most overlooked but clearly are one of the most important pieces of your fly casting system.  This is true for both single-hand and Spey casting.  Discover which fly line is right for you and your rods at our fourth annual RIO Line Demo Day at the Golden Gate Angling & Casting Club ponds in San Francisco on Saturday, August 25th.  

 RIO brand manager and renowned casting instructor Simon Gawesworth, along with local RIO pros and product experts will be on-hand with an assortment of RIO single-hand and Spey fly lines for you to demo on your own rods or on Sage and Redington rods that will be provided for the event.

Come and Try Out All of the Latest Sage and Redington Rods

For the first time as part of this product demo event, two of the leading manufacturers of fly rods — Sage and Redington — will be on hand with all of their single hand and two-handed fly rods for you to try out either on the edge of the Golden Gate casting ponds or while wading in the water to get the real experience, especially for Spey casting.  You can test these rods with quality RIO lines, or bring your own reels and lines to find a perfect match for your existing gear.

Try-on Simms Waders and Performance Clothing at the Golden Gate ponds

For the second straight year, Simms will be joining our product demo day activities and will feature their complete line of waders, boots, and clothing in essentially all sizes for both men and women.

Participants will be eligible for hourly raffle prize drawings (must be present to win!).  All participants will receive special discount coupons redeemable for 20% off any RIO fly line and 10% off on Simms waders at participating fly shops in Northern California.  Free lunch will be provided by the great folks at RIO, Sage, Redington, and Simms.  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 - "Casting Demonstration - Single handed Rods & Two-handed Spey Rods"
  • 1:30 - 2:15 PM - Simon Gawesworth - "Casting Demonstration - Trout Spey Lines and Rods"

Remember to mark your calendars for Saturday, August 25, 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 for this.

No pre-registration required. For more information and any questions, contact GGACC President, Willy George
