The Swing Season is upon us, and we are starting to line up our free Spey Clinics for the 2016-17 season. Folks are asking about it and many have already swung a fish or three this season. Our clinics and methodology continue to evolve, as spey fishing for trout – not Steelhead – has become the primary focus. Lighter and shorter rods, ultra compact heads, and a new generation of flies are where the typical Montana angler is headed.
We still have plenty to say about Steelhead and the equipment and techniques we use to catch them, however. And in our class you’ll likely be starting out with a 12’6″ 6 weight outfit, one we consider ideal for summer run Steelhead. But the trout gear is there as well, and we’re finding most of the questions we receive revolve around fishing in Montana.
