Larimer Intro to Spey Casting
This clinic will focus on the fundamentals of spey casting for folks that have little to no experience with a two-hander. Students will learn how to execute a spey cast from start to finish and will receive hands on instruction. Skills learned from the beginner class will be transferable to other types of spey cast.

Larimer Advanced Spey Casting/Technique
Our advanced clinic will focus on dialing in your spey cast, as well as fishing with a two-hander. Students can expect to learn more detail on various types of spey cast and how to incorporate different techniques into each one for changing situations. This class is targeted for anglers with experience, and you should be proficient in the basic spey cast. The advanced clinic will make you a better angler with a two hander.
