Day on the River with Henrik Mortensen

World-renowned Spey casting instructor and Spey system designer Henrik Mortensen will be conducting two half-day Spey casting clinics for the Native Fish Society on Sunday March 12. The clinics are limited to 12 people on a first come first served basis with proceeds going to support the Native Fish Society’s wild fish conservation programs.

The Sunday Clinics will be held at Oxbow Park on the Sandy River from 8 a.m. to 12 Noon and from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Mortensen has worked professionally with fly tackle design and development for more than 10 years and has instructed thousands of fly fishers in the intricacy of Spey casting throughout the world. Mortensen has incorporated a unique underhanded cast to the Spey repertoire that maximizes the physics of Spey casting with the least amount of effort.

Mortensen is a key part of the design team for SCIERRA, a Spey, rod and line system that has taken Europe by storm and is just being introduced to the U.S. He was previously involved in designing the Loop rods and reels.

Mortensen and an assistant will provide group and individual instruction during the half-day clinics, all on water. These clinics are the only ones Mortensen will be conducting on the west coast.

Jack Cook, NFS member and owner of the Irish Angler, will have SCIERRA rods, reels and lines on hand at the clinics that may be tried out by participants and purchased if desired. Cook will donate 20% of sales to the Native Fish Society.

The clinics will include a small raffle with proceeds going to the Native Fish Society.

The cost for the clinic is only $50 for members, non-members $100 which includes membership to NFS. You should dress for warmth, bring waders and your favorite spey system to the clinic. Hot beverages will be available.

To register, Call Anne Tattam at 503-977-3133. Payment must be made in advance by VISA, MasterCard, American Express or by check.
