Event Trout Spey Workshop Poster

They’re excited to have Rick Kustich back at the Trout Spey Workshop at Dette Flies this season!

Rick will be hosting a trout Spey workshop on Saturday, June 8th, at the fly shop. This class is designed to familiarize you with the equipment, flies, and techniques essential for light Spey fishing, all within a classroom setting.

Following the instructional session, they’ll head out onto the water for a hands-on experience. You’ll learn the art of reading water, controlling the fly, and mastering varying presentation techniques. You’ll be able to hone your two-handed casting skills, as well as learn new tips and tricks centered around touch and go, and waterborne anchor casts.

Whether you’re just getting started, or well on your way, you’ll leave this workshop with the knowledge and skills to start, or continue your journey in trout Spey fishing.

All gear is provided by the shop.

All participants will receive $25.00 back in in-store credit upon completion of the class.
