Spey casting tuition, Canada
|Spey school on the Bow River
Ally Gowans will be heading will teach at The
Bow River Troutfitters Spey Casting School in September 2005.
The event will be held atthe North Bow Lodge near Calgary. Come and
from one of the World's most respected Spey fishermen how to cast and
fish using the length and power of the Spey rod to mend and control the
drift of the fly. During the course you will be taught how the Spey
works and after some practice you should be able to make single and double
Spey casts with confidence and to identify your own mistakes and correct
them. Fishing is not all about casting, but to have confidence and and
cast with ease is a sure way to enjoy your fishing with greater success
in the future.
The school is specifically designed to help the steelhead angler. It covers
the important fundimentals of Single and Double Spey casting, Snake rolls,
and overhead casting with two-handed rods and continues to teach the most
advanced practical casting and fishing techniques. It also includes Spey
casting with single handed rods and the use of hauls to achieve single
handed roll casting performance that will surprise you. This is probably
the most comprehensive casting course available anywhere and it is guaranteed
to make you think again about how you cast and make it easier on your
body. During the course there is lots of information exchange, tips about
designing and making sink tip and sinking lines and I daren't even mention
fly patterns! You can decide what you want to learn, just ask Ally! You
may like to use a double tapered line, a long belly WF or a short heavy
shooting head. Ally does not mind because he will help you to get the
best out of your tackle, whatever it is. A range of rods and lines will
be made available for you to try during the course, take the mystery out
of your future investment, make comparisons and purchase with comfort
but remember that the most important part of the whole outfit is the "nut"
holding the handle. This course will teach you how to loosen the nut and
handle your rod and line with ease.
