WorldCast Anglers is excited to offer two separate full day Spey Casting and Fishing Clinics with Dec Hogan on the Snake River in Jackson Hole, WY. Dec Hogan is one of the foremost authorities in spey casting and instruction and is one of the most influential steelhead anglers, guides and authors of our time. This hands-on clinic is held on moving water and simulates actual angling situations while using a two-handed “spey” rod and casting techniques.
Cast Further & Easier
Spey casting is one of the most popular techniques in fly fishing. While using either a single or two-handed rod, anglers have the ability to cast further, present flies in difficult to reach places, cover water more effectively in a more timely fashion and most importantly, keep their flies in the water for longer periods of time. This leads to increased hookups with fish. In any fishing situation, spey casting allows anglers to cast larger flies long distances and avoids obstacles on the shore by keeping most of the line in front of the angler.
Casting, Equipment & Techniques
The morning is used as an informal discussion and conversation period on spey casting, equipment, and techniques, and followed by several hours of spey casting demonstrations and one-on-one instruction. We will break for lunch mid-day where students and participants are encouraged to relax and continue conversations with Dec about his time on the water, gear, and all things “spey”. The afternoon is spent on the water in actual fishing applications and situations you will encounter while targeting steelhead and/or other andromous fish species.
