Thumbs up Lessons with Simon Gawesworth

Simon recently conducted classes on Vancouver Island and I was able to get a spot in his intermediate class. I wanted to express my gratitude and appreciation for the great insight he passed on to our class. He lived up to his reputation and all the students were very impressed. I've been casting two-handers for several years now and I feel that I'm a proficient caster. That said I was sure Simon would be able to help me improve problem areas. I really enjoyed the way he split his time between the six members of our group and concentrated on each caster. It was neat to learn more on how Simon performs his advanced double spey. I've also got a bunch of things I need to work on to sort out that pesky left hand up single spey! So if you get the chance to take lessons with him I highly recommend you do it.

Lessons with Simon Gawesworth

Wow, I wish that I had of known about Simon coming to the Stamp.I presume that It was on the Stamp) I fish that river every Sept and it is a lot of fun with a Spey rod. I have watched the Rio dvd and he is a great instructor. I could use a lesson or two. Will he be back? Who did you book the lessons thru?

Our Class took place on the Cowichan River. Robinson's Outdoor store in Victoria set things up. Things went well and Matt King at Robinson's said they may try to do it again next year. They didn't have any issues filling up the spots!
