Skeena Spey School April 2007
The springtime water holds large steelhead, and the beginning of the run of some moderate to large Chinook (king) salmon. Based just outside Terrace, BC, we lodged with Brad & Kim Zeerip at the Z-Boat
Lodge for the week of Spey casting instruction & some fishing.
The hospitality, lodge, and the food was second to none.
Dana Sturn of Speypages.com was the instructor for 6 willing participants, 5 from USA & Canada, and myself.
As Dana expounded on the merits of various casting methods, the instructees watched and listened…
Dana often put over his points quite thoroughly…
…and I listened & watched intently.
As to the fishing, some unusual (for me) flies were to be used.
Brad, in addition to owning & running the lodge, also captained his jet boat, which he loved driving.

The boats were launched each day, as we fished different sections of the river, rotating to different areas
