Teaching Kids to Spey Cast

One of the real joys of guiding is sharing our passion of fly fishing with the next generation. Watching young kids become enamoured with the sport is such a pleasure.  Over the years we have taught many, many kids how to fly fish.  The key to success when handing a youngster their first 2 handed rod is making it fun.  Attention spans aren’t always very long so you want to get them into the action right away.  The best way to do this is by breaking the cast down into 3 simple steps that kids can understand.  They will be excited to be turning the fly over and casting 3o or 40 feet with a floating line and dry fly.  Have a look at this video for some tips on making it a success.
