instructor/ opportunity for lessons in Northeastern Massachusetts

I have never spey cast and would like to learn. I purchased a shu fly 11foot 6wgt switch rod and lined it with a cortland 6wgt switch line 375 grains, 100 feet long.

Any instructors available or spey organizations in this geographhical area?

Recommendations for speycasting instructional video would be appreciated.

Thanks, Neil

We have the New England Spey Clave II on May 11, 2013.
Most of the major TH rod manuf. reps and line reps will attend.

See the blog newenglandspeyclave.blogspot.com for directions and details.

In addition Facebook = New England Spey Clave

Guests giving on the water demonstrations are as follows:
Andrew Moy
Michael Mauri
Toper Brown


We also have casting videos on our new web site:

speycastingnortheast.com

The web site is intended for education and instruction on spey casting, not commercial.
It is a work in progress and will be expanded when the snow goes away in a few weeks.

E-mail for weekend classes if interested, we have enjoyed teaching over 100 students in the past three years.

Regards,
FK

You would be remiss if you didn't get a lesson from Walt. He's an excellent spey caster and a wonderful person. Walt taught me how to spey fish. 100% give him a buzz.

i used to live there. i took my first lesson with Juro because i didnt know anyone else. He was proficient and good instructor. I wouldnt say i made him proud with my first and only lesson, but i love casting and dont suck at it all the time anymore. was huge leap on learning curve to have someone watch and pay attention to you. definitely worth the coin,even retrospectively.

i tried to hire walt geryk as a guide, but have been unsucessful so far. will try again when stars align. ill bring cranberry juice and ketorolac on next trip to increase my chances.

Rushers steelhead was my favorite fly when i was a nymphomaniac. cant go wrong with a guy with proven steelhead mojo.

i used to swing the back side of cranes on the castleneck all the time, great place to swing for dinks and occasional bigger morons. great place to practice as only the gulls laugh at your initial thrashing about. welcome to the next level.
