The Ashland Fly Shop: a Spey Clinic at Touvelle Park
Ashland Fly Shop has invited back George Cook, a Sage Sales Rep. on March 9 2014 to conduct a Spey Clinic.
George is a gifted caster and an entertaining teacher. His approach to casting while technical, is very practical and experienced based.
The class will focus on sink-tip fishing with Skagit lines and the appropriate casts to accommodate sink-tip fishing, like the double spey and Snap-T family of casts.
All skill levels are welcome. If you have a spey rod, bring it. We can evaluate your rod/line set-up and make sure it is well matched and properly rigged. If not, there will be plenty Sage and Redington rods to use.
When: Sunday, March 9, 9am to 2pm
Where: Tou Velle Park
How to Pay: Call the Ashland Fly Shop (541) 488‑6454, stop by,
or purchase online. Class size is limited to 10. Be prepared for winter weather, bring a lunch/snacks/drinks if necessary
Kenneth Frantz, presents his book Berkeley-Paris Express, Mon July 15 at Ashland Community Center, 7:30pm
I’ve always admired Maya Angelou, I think Shakespeare would have too.
The provocative declaration “Shakespeare must be a black girl” starts this lovely Atlantic Monthly article essentially saying that: “The poetry you read has been written for you, each of you—black, white, Hispanic, man, woman, gay, straight.”

LJ Sellers printed The Sex Club in 2007. It was a controversial thriller that opened with the bombing of a birth control clinic, a young woman dead in a dumpster and, as Sellers says, a Bible study group that shared more than Good News. Who knew that Sellers’ first quiet effort would be followed by a series so successful that she can now write full time.

The first ecologist to closely study the Siskiyous said that they were “…as dramatic an expression of relations of natural communities to geological formations as is to be found anywhere in the world.” This class will explore the surrounding landscape from both a geological and a botanical perspective, as we learn how plants in the region have adapted to four distinctly different habitats – from the valley floor to Bigelow Lakes.
