Why Spey?

You can swing flies for trout with a single handed rod or a two handed rod. We prefer to use two handed spey rods or switch rods depending on the size of the river we are fishing. The reason being is because you can cover large amounts of water more efficiently and with less effort using longer rods. People often thing spey casting is extremely difficult to learn and in reality it’s not.

Styles of Spey Casting We Teach

We are well adept in teach all three styles of spey (Traditional, Scandi and Skagit). While all have their place, the skagit system is the easiest to learn and makes the most sense for the N. Platte for fishing big flies and sink tips on 5-6 wt rods.
