Beaver Creek Fly Shop and Heavy Water Anglers will be holding our Fall Spey Clinic this year on the North Branch of the Potomac River on November 17th and 18th.
This is a two day class and is limited to six anglers.
If you're interested please send us an email or call the store during our normal business hours at (301) 393 - 9090. This is on a first come, first served basis so don't wait too long!
Each participant will get a Echo TR2 11' 3" 4 weight trout spey ($379.99,) an Echo Bravo Reel ($139.99,) RIO In Touch Skagit Trout Spey Versitip kit ($179.99,) and a box of Trout Spey flies. This is a
We will have 3 people per cabin and provide lunch, dinner and after dinner refreshments the first day and breakfast and lunch the second day.
We will begin with casting instruction on the grass and learning about the different lines. Once everyone has learned some basic casting techniques we will break for lunch.
After lunch we will head down to the river for casting lessons on the water. This is where will learn about anchoring your line and orienting yourself to start swinging a run. Afterwards we will provide dinner and drinks. That night we will also tie some flies and talk about what makes a good Spey fly for trout.
We will be providing a hearty breakfast and coffee for everyone as you wake up.
After breakfast we will pack up and drive down to the boat ramp. We will put the boats in and float down river to a good run where we will have a group class. Here we will learn how to swing a run and how to really fish with your Spey rod. After all, the end goal is to catch fish not just look at how pretty our cast is!
After the group session we will break for lunch on the side of the river.
Once we finish with lunch we will pack into the boats again and head down river where we'll fish the rest of the day. We'll break into groups of three and start stepping runs and put everything we just learned into action!
When you leave this class you will have all the tools and knowledge necessary to spend your winter Spey fishing the Potomac for trout! This is an incredible opportunity to learn from Tom Martin of Heavy Water Anglers on his home water. There is no one else around who really understands this fishery as well as him and you couldn't have a better teacher for this clinic.
The price of this clinic is $1000. You will be getting your gear at a discounted rate, two days of in depth instruction and a great time with some new friends!
**This fishery is not easy to wade. If you're not comfortable wading in this river, then this is not for you. You will receive a checklist of all the essentials for this trip when you sign up.
