One of Flycasters most popular series is the Spey Casting Classes

Learning two handed casting affords fly fishers greater success in covering moving water - whether large rivers wth large fish or even mountain streams.  Two handed casting techniques allow you to cast farther and with greater accuracy anywhere your back cast is limited.

Spey Rods

Class is divided into morning sessions and noon sessions - 4 students in the morning and 4 more at noon -- There are only EIGHT spots available - 

Classes held at the casting ponds at Los Gatos Creek Park - bring waders and boots - you will be IN the water - and eye protection is a must - you must be wearing sunglasses, eyeglasses, or goggles - NO EXCEPTIONS

If you have your own two handed rod or rods please bring them - if not, the club has equipment for you to use during the classes.
