Anglers have been using two-handed fly rods and Spey fly-casting techniques for salmon and steelhead for a long time. The reason is very simple: They [two-handed fly rods and Spey Casting] work really well for covering larger bodies of water, and make fishing these types of fisheries much more enjoyable. It was only a matter of time before trout anglers fishing large bodies of water discovered how effective fishing flies with two-handed rods and Spey casting techniques can be. The result is more and more anglers heading to their local waters with two-handed, "Trout Spey" rods in their hands. This class is meant to for those who have never touched a two-hander, to those who have tried it, and want a simple and structured approach on how to use these rods more effectively. 

Class Sessions

First Class: This will take place at the shop, and the class will run from 6:15 PM - 8:30 PM. We will discuss what Trout Spey is, break down the different kinds of lines on the market, their uses, and their pros and cons. We will also discuss simple fly riggings for each style of line used to cast these two-handed rods.

Second Class: We will meet down at Liberty Park or Sugarhouse Park. Class will run from 6:15 PM - 8:00 PM, and will focus on the stance, grip, and three bare essential casts needed to be effective when using a two-handed rod for trout. *We can provide rods, reels, and lines for those who don't have any two-handed trout gear.*

Third Class: The class will take place on the Lower Provo, and will run from 7:30 AM - 12:00 PM. This class session will focus firstly on identifying the best kind of water for using a two-handed trout rod, secondly on learning how to cast a two-handed rod in a moving water environment, and thirdly on how to rig and fish with these rods effectively. 

If you've been wanting to try out fishing for trout with a two-hander, this class will give the essential tools and knowledge to do so. We look forward to having you join us, and helping you learn this fun, unique, and effective way of chasing trout on larger bodies of water!
