Course Description

Spey casting makes it easier to shoot line further than single-handed casting. This is especially useful when distance is needed and there's no room for making a backcast. This traditional casting method uses 11- to 15-foot, two-handed rods that peel line off the water's surface and whip it forward. It's growing in popularity, particularly with salmon and steelhead fishermen. During your one-on-one lesson, our expert instructors will take you step by step through the various spey casts, helping you become proficient in each technique. You'll learn how to switch, double spey, snake roll, single spey, circle spey and snap-T.

You'll have ample time to practice each cast with your instructor, who will guide you in the best and most effective practices for enjoying this exciting style of fishing.

Cancellation and Rescheduling Policy

*Synthetic clothing dries quickly and is the best choice for outdoor pursuits. Please do not wear cotton clothing. When wet, cotton rapidly robs the heat from your body and takes a long time to dry. We also recommend you dress in multiple layers, allowing you more flexibility to comfortably respond to the weather conditions and your level of exertion.

†Please call ahead if you plan to use your own equipment as it must pass inspection by L.L.Bean staff before use. If it's deemed unsuitable, we will provide you with the necessary equipment.

‡You can purchase a temporary fishing license at L.L.Bean's Hunting & Fishing Store in Freeport, ME. You can also obtain a license or find more information on licensing at http://www.maine.gov/ifw/licenses_permits/index.htm
