will be holding a beginner to low intermediate two-hand (Spey 1.0) fly casting clinic on April 20, 2019. The location is yet to be determined, however it will be held in a protected and shallow body of saltwater in Rhode Island. The clinic will be taught by a Certified Casting Instructor and two Certified Master Fly Casting Instructors (one of whom is Certified in Two-Handed fly casting instruction). Each instructor is certified with Fly Fishers International (
The clinic will be limited to ten (10) students and start in the late morning and run approximately 5-6 hours. Lunch will be provided. This will be our third
clinic and we fully expect it to sell out. The cost of the clinic is $200.
The casts that will be taught include the Roll, Snap T, Double Spey, Single Spey, and Perry Poke, together with corresponding off-shoulder casts. Additionally students will learn about types of shooting heads, leaders and sink tips as well as a variety of fishing techniques.
Students are encouraged to bring their Spey and Switch two-hand rods, however a supply of Spey rods, reels and various lines will be on-hand. Students will be encouraged to try different rod, shooting line and head combinations.
This clinic is a great opportunity to take a lot of the mystery out of two-hand fly casting, and vastly improve your techniques.
It is our intention to also hold an Advanced Spey casting class in early September 2019.
