SPEY LESSONS

OUR PHILOSOPHY!

Learning how to Spey cast can be confusing especially when making the transition from "single handed" fly casting. 

So we believe in starting you off teaching the basics...learning about the new equipment that Spey casting will introduce to you, as well as learning the different types of Spey casts.

Just a sample of what you will learn:
  • "Why Spey Cast?" 
  • How the equipment works to deliver your fly.
  • How to match the equipment to the Spey casting method.
  • How to select the right Spey cast for the fishing conditions.
We teach you the different styles of Spey cast.
Traditional 
Scandinavian 
Skagit
