There’s no time like the present to learn a new skill set or refine your current status quo. 

Jennifer books weekly private & semi-private lessons for anyone looking for casting help at any level, single-hand, or spey. 

 

Never touched a fly rod or need a total basic lesson? I can provide a rod and reel! Single-hand lessons meet on the grass in West Linn at Willamette Park and for Spey, you only need waders & boots as we begin on the water. 

 

For single-hand basics we review; equipment knots, roll cast, overhead cast, mending, entomology, fly selection, how fish feed, different takes, and various approaches to fly presentation all with a fun twist that will keep you engaged, laughing, and learning. More advanced casters might be looking to refine that double haul or learn a few single-hand spey casts to very their current roll casting selection. 

 

Spey Basics define anchor placement, key positioning to form better D-loops with sustained anchor casts, eliminate tailing loops, learn to shoot line, reading water, line/tip/fly selection.

More advanced? Looking to add distance to your casts? Snake roll and single Spey are a specialty for those ready to learn those beautiful "touch and go" casts!
