Working the Middle Fork OF the Snoqualmie in August. North Bend, Washington

The rivers of Western Washington [Skykomish, Skagit, Sauk, Stillaguamish, Nooksack, Green] are steeped in history and have been fished by the pioneers of northwest fly fishing. Covering these large Western rivers requires a technique that allows for maximum distance and line control of the swung fly.

The River Spey is located in northeastern Scotland and is known for its width and fast flowing runs, ideal for Atlantic Salmon. The Spey rod was developed so anglers could cast without the use of a back cast. Minimal wade fishing is available on these rivers as well. Around the northwest, we have been adapting these techniques to our local rivers. New Spey fly lines have been developed to throw a variety of flies and sink tips.

Our instructors can help you learn the basics, but also provide you with the skills needed to add distance to your existing casts. While working on your casts, it is a good idea to study steelhead behavior. Our guides will discuss behavior, hooking and playing a fish, proper handling and release of our native steelhead and salmon.

There are a lot of casts between fish, and the more prepared will always be more effective. Get a hold of us to book a casting session. Thanks!
