Needed Spey instructor in New York Area

Trying to get my father a Spey instructor, because he can now longer deal with single handed casting. Any info would be great.

Dido Andy Moy, I've take a handful of classes from a few big names, and have studied many of the dvds...only thing I don't regret is finding Andy Moy sooner. he is no joke, and based on what I have scene one of the best instrutctors on the east coast.

Andrew Moy is the man.

I took few lessons from him and hopefully I'll book him again in the spring.

By the way.

He has a great fly shop

upper saddle river

give the Huffs at Streams of Dreams a call. 201.934.1138. Father/son operation, great guys and a wealth of knowledge for anything spey related. Ask for Harry or Jon.

"I fish because I love to, not because I regard fishing as being so terribly important but because I suspect that so many of the other concerns of man are equally unimportant; and not nearly so much fun."

NY Spey Instruction!

K2FlyFisher is definitely on the money with his recommendation on the Huffs. Harry and Jonathon are excellent with the two handed rods and good teachers.

Andrew cut his teeth years ago with the Huffs from what I understand. He is really good with a two handed rod as well. He runs his own shop called Tight Lines Fly Fishing and would be another excellent recommendation as many others have already posted.

Have fun trying to sleep at night once you delve into this!!!

Best Fishes,
