SPEY CASTING COURSE

EXPERT SPEY CASTING INSTRUCTION

Unfortunately our 2020 Spey casting course was cancelled due to Covid-19, but we’re back with new 2021 dates! Join the Chromer Sport Fishing team and spey casting guru Tim Arsenault for two days of individualized instruction and fun on the river. This spey casting course is meant for beginner to intermediate spey casters looking to improve not only their casting but their knowledge of swung fly fishing here in the Pacific Northwest. There are two course dates, March 20/21 & March 27/28.  Both courses held in Squamish, BC, about an hour drive north of Vancouver. Limited to six anglers per course, so lots of one on one instruction. We also offer a variety of fly fishing lessons at other times of the year, if you’re not looking for a specific spey course.

Tim and I built this condensed program to combine a bunch of fun with some fishing and obviously a pile of instruction. If you’re not familiar with Tim Arsenault, he is one of the most highly regarded casting instructors in Canada and a very knowledgeable guy when it comes to all things spey. Tim, along with our team of senior guides will make sure you maximize your weekend, with Saturday being the instruction day and Sunday giving you a chance to put your skills to the test on guided day. We anticipate these spots fill up quick, look forward to having you along!
