Hooray! Once again Headhunters Fly Shop and Guide Service is hosting famed spey casters Mike McCune and Whitney Gould. They will be conducting their very popular 2 Handed Casting Spey Clinic focussing on Sustained Anchor Casts.
Last year these 2 clinics sold out. We expect the same again this year. We already have a few guests signed up.
These clinics are scheduled for Saturday and Sunday April 11th and 12th.
Mike is a longtime PNW Steelhead guide, and was on the ground floor of NW speycasting (he’s the “M” in your Rio MOW tips kit). Whitney is the women’s world champion speycaster (Spey-o-rama). They both spend most of the year guiding two-handed anglers from Alaska to California, but do make their annual spring trip to Montana where they offer a few select clinics at Spey oriented shops like Headhunters in Craig.
The class emphasis will be on “sustained anchor” casts from both river right and left. Class size is limited to 6, so you can be assured you will get attention and instruction from Mike and Whitney. There are not a lot of opportunities to get hands on instruction like this, especially in trout country.
Cost is $200 per person. You are encouraged to bring your own equipment so that Mike and Whitney can help dial you in with the rod/line combo you will be using. If you are new to spey casting and need to borrow equipment, Headhunters has a big quiver for you to borrow from with rods from SAGE, Echo, Orvis, and T & T.
Mike & Whitney focus on the cast, not the gear. Skagit, Scandi and Long Belly rigs are all invited. Late in the day they often play around with the challenges of Long Belly lines for those who wish.
Mike McCune has been on the front edge of of Spey Innovation for some time and with the addition of Whitney Gould and her spey casting expertise make this the clinic to attend this spring!
$200 will get you an all day long opportunity to increase your knowledge in sustained anchor techniques. Starting at 9am and going all day long with lunch provided by Headhunters.
Class size limited to 6 so you will get all kinds of personal attention.
Whitney Gould is a world champion spey caster and a long time instructor and guide. She is highly regarded in the industry and we know

I took a clinic from Mike and Whitney 2 years ago. Best money I ever spent in the fly fishing world. Highly recommend this clinic for both beginners and seasoned casters. It would be the equivelant of taking golf lessons from Arnold Palmer.
Well said Ken!
