Spey casting on the Skagit
Coordinator: Cathy Schaefer  date: TBD

The Confluence Fly Shop is working on putting together a spey demo day for the Fidalgo Fly Fishers on postponed until further notice.  Spey casting is a fun and efficient way to fish large and small rivers alike throughout the Pacific Northwest.  Spey casting allows anglers to minimize their casting time and maximize the time their fly spends in the water, deal with limited back casting room and cover sufficient distance with ease.   The focus of this event will be on learning a variety of effective spey casts and having an opportunity to try out some different equipment.  We will have some demo rods and lines to try, as well as the ability to try some different lines on your own equipment if you already have a spey or switch rod and are looking to dial it in.
