Midwest Spey School - Will Turek
Recently participated in a two day beginning Spey casting class taught by Will Turek of Midwest Spey School. The class included two nights lodging, all meals and two full days of on stream instruction. The class covered roll, overhead, circle, double, switch, snap c, snap t, snap z, circle poke, Skagit double and wombat casts. Even included the excellent “Spey to Z” instructional DVD for reinforcement after the conclusion of the class. Instruction was done using both short belly and Skagit lines including sink tips. All equipment was included, including all the new Scott Spey rods. Waders were really all the special equipment that you needed to bring. Class took place on Ohio’s Grand River.
I really can’t say enough about how well the class was conducted and taught. Will is an excellent teacher and a very accomplished Spey caster. His methods included various exercises to develop positive muscle memory, including how to properly clear line and apply the 180 degree rule to casting. While I really didn’t have any specific expectations for the class I left with a very considerable gain in knowledge and in execution of Spey casting. I did not become an expert caster, but now have a solid foundation to build on. Whether you are new to Spey, looking to fine tune some casts or looking to add some new casts to your arsenal I would highly recommend you contact Will Turek. You will not be disappointed if you do.
Looking forward to swinging flies with a two hand this fall in pursuit of some Michigan Steel.
