Spey Casting Courses

Speycasting tuition in beautiful surroundings.

“More than half the intense enjoyment of fly-fishing is derived from the beautiful surroundings, the satisfaction felt from being in the open air, the new lease of life secured thereby, and the many, many pleasant recollections of all one has seen, heard and done.”

Charles F. Orvis

There is indeed much more to fishing than catching fish. Salmon fishing is about enjoying the beauty of your surroundings and company of those you fish with. The fishing experience is however clearly enhanced by having the ability to cast well: casting proficiently will inevitably result in the catching of more fish.

Ian, able assisted by Tom, hosts 3 day casting and fishing tuition in the spring months on some of the most exclusive beats on the the river Spey with a range of fishing holidays available throughout the season.

All types of double handed rod spey casting is taught on the courses: Single Spey, Double Spey, Roll Cast, Snake Roll, Circle C Cast, Snap T cast.

Larger, either corporate or private groups of up to 12 people, can be catered for on the Rivers Spey, Dee and Tay supplying all tackle, accommodation and transport.

The bespoke fishing packages are designed to suit individual requirements and expectations.
