Brian Greenwood here. I provided a lecture on Trout/NSR Micro Skagit Spey fishing with 2 handed 4 wt rods for fishing the NSR in the winter to the membership. Some of you may remember it.

I am offering to provide a hands on introductory experience to any interested in learning to Spey. I will provide the lines, rods, reels, tips, and any other necessary gear (including Jameson Irish Whiskey) for interested parties to try it out. I can accommodate parties of 2. All you need provide are your own waders and boots.

No fee, no commitment, no obligations to enjoy this unique expression of fly fishing.

I will provide a refresher overview of the philosophy and application of Skagit Casting and then we'll get on the water and try it out.

I understand the NSR is blown out right now and utterly unfishable. Don't let this deter you from exploring Skagit for an hour of your weekend.

I will be directly under the Groat Bridge at 10:00 am on Saturdays. You will know me as I drive a green Chev Silverado. I may already be on the water directly below where my truck is parked. I will have a rod set up for you, so don't be a stranger.

I do not represent any business or company, I'm not out to sell anything. I simply want to share my love for Skagit so I can find others to speak Spey with.

ALSO, I will provide an opportunity for you to try your hand at single handed Skagit Casting, which is a way to partake of the sport affordably, as it converts your favorite flyrod into a Spey rod.

Questions? Concerns? Please call or text Brian at 587 784 8841.

To answer a good question, the Groat Bridge location Brian is talking about is accessible by Emily Murphy Park.

To answer another good question, you can expect to master the double spey and kak spey casts in the first hour. Depending on how quickly you pick it up, you can expect to have the basics for the snap t, Perry poke, touch n go, and even the snake roll casts.

The NSR and Bow Rivers are perfect waters to apply the Skagit casts.
