Class will be taught on the water and is intended for women who already fly fish; but are looking to increase their knowledge and skills.

There are 3 instructors for this program so that you have an opportunity to learn a variety of Spey Techniques. You will be using your single handed fly rod to learn some of the Spey casts. Spey rods (2-handed rods) will be available for your use during the class.
