Spey Casting Clinics with Chris Seipio

March 12, 2015

Beginning Spey/Switch Casting: Sunday, March 29

This full day class will focus on the fundamentals of casting a two-handed fly rod. Chris will also talk about lines and leaders that in the Spey world can be very confusing. If you don’t already own a spey/switch rod not to worry, we will have rods that you can use. If you already own a two-hander make sure you bring it, we will have a full line set to help you dial in your grain weight. Lunch provided. Class is limited to 6 students.

Intermediate/Advanced Spey Casting: Saturday, March 28

This full day class will focus on dialing in your spey cast and moving you up to the next level. Students will review some basic casts to warm up, and then move onto learning more advanced casts. We will also cover more in depth line/leader/sinking heads/tips etc. so the confusion of what/when/how/why of rigging isn’t such a mystery. Lunch provided. Class is limited to 6 students.
