Spey Casting Clinic

Deerfield Fly Shop’s Introduction to Spey Casting with Eric Halloran and Jim Dowd

Been hearing a lot about Spey casting–even for trout!–and always wanted to give it a shot? Here’s an opportunity to learn the basics of this beautiful, and highly effective, way to cast a fly. This on-the-water class is a very basic introduction to Spey casting. Eric and Jim will take you through the fundamental principles of how Spey casting works and how to safely choose casts depending on wind direction and your position on the river. They will then demonstrate a few different casts with some time at the end for you to try these casts under their guidance. From the roll cast to the switch cast to the Single Spey, Double Spey, Snap T and more, Eric and Jim will give you a solid start to your Spey journey!

Cost for the session is $35 per person. The class will last about an hour and a half.

Class is Saturday, Oct. 3, 2020. Meet at the Deerfield Fly Shop, 8A Elm St, South Deerfield, at 10 a.m. and head to the river from there. Bring your wading gear, sunglasses, sunblock and appropriate clothing.
