“Poppy” is one cool dude

I recently had the chance to fish with the Clearwater river spey casting icon “Poppy” from the Red shed fly shop.  He was more than just interesting.  Poppy kept me on my toes with great stories and his overall passion for spey casting but most of all for the fish themselves.  I hope that in the near future I can get over to his gathering on the Clearwater, I am sure it will be fun.
He was accompanied by fellow long liner and student of the great writings of Alexander Grant, Ken Campbell.  Ken fished his 17 foot 7/8 Clan,  with classic blue charms and stoat tails.  All that I can say about Ken is he gets it.  The quest, the fish, the casting, the zen of it all if you will he gets it.
Enjoy the photo of the man “Poppy” and his new found friend Descchutes river steelhead.
