If you love to fish for steelhead and salmon and would like to experience the thrill and challenge of catching these magnificent creatures using the most rewarding presentation deserved of these fish, Northwest Speycasting will show you the way.

Fly casting is a skill sport. It requires a balance of coordination, timing, leverage, reflex, finesse, and mental focus rather than brute force or overt muscle mass effort and speed. What is spey casting? Technically speaking, spey casting is defined as a change of direction fly cast that utilizes the water's surface to create line tension to energize or “load” the rod. Using a “two handed” fly rod is simply the most effective and efficient way to present a swinging fly to resident trout and migratory steelhead or salmon in nearly any river, regardless of size, flow, or casting area restrictions. The advantages of line control, reduced physical effort, and overall fly fishing presentation makes spey casting an essential skill to possess for any fly angler. And Northwest Speycasting will have you fishing your fly more effectively and successfully than you ever imagined possible!
