I have acquired a spey rod/reel a few months ago and have tried to teach myself. It's been going ok, but I seriously need critique help.
My big problem is I need someone who's fairly inexpensive or either will trade instruction for a floattrip (I have my own a 16' cataraft and fish the Chehalis system and up the west side Oly Pen). I'm a single Dad and money is tight at times, so if I can exchange instruction for a trip or whatever would be great.
Any help would be appreciated. I'd also like to find someone in the King/Pierce counties. I live in Tacoma and would like to find someone close. But if I have to drive I will.

Might try Dave Steinbaugh out at Waters West Inc. in PA. Has a great shop and does some workshops with the two handers.

I live in Longview Washington, just south of you, and while I'm no expert, i would be more than happy to get together and give you a hand, either on a fishing trip or on any piece of water between the two of us. It's always great to meet a new spey nut!

Jerry, Take Steve up on his offer. At the first Spey Clave the 100, or so, of us sat in a simi-circle on the beach and watched a true master at work. Steve has the 'nick-name' "longcast" for a verrrry good reason.

Hello jerry, You dont want to miss the chance to learn from Steve, besides being a heck of a nice guy, he can cast abullet of a line and can really break down what you are doing wrong or right. And if you are looking for a good reference Derek Brown has said that Steve is the best caster he has seen other than himself of course.

I just have to agree with Fred and Bruce's recommendations to take Steve up on his offer. It is an opportunity not to pass-up.
There are at least two things that may outweigh Steve's great modesty (you have to see how very well he does cast to really appreciate it): his casting ability and willingness to help out.
