Thumbs up 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.

Will did an excellent job with his demonstration at the spey clave here on the Joe May 17th. I agree his spey schools should be a great way to brush up on your skills or learning how to cast with little to no experience. Either way Will should have you covered....

The website is under construction, but I was wondering if you had a phone # for Will. I'm NW Ohio and would love to take the class. Thanks!

Here's an example of the kind of thing that makes me scratch my head sometimes. I don't know Mr Turek and I'm sure he is a great guy and a fine instructor. But here we have folks using the Speyclave as a means to advertise his Spey Schools--1669 hits and counting. That's a lot of free advertising for Mr Turek and his schools. Mr Turek is not a Speypages sponsor, and really why should he be when he has a group of satisfied clients getting the word out? They obviously believe that the Speypages is a great place to advertise Mr Turek's services, and my guess is that Mr Turek frequents these pages from time-to-time, so why not suggest to him that he contact me about becoming a Speypages sponsor?
