Swinging flies on a Mini-Two-Hander” is gaining traction around Bozeman as a fun and innovative way to fish our local rivers. Modern technology in rods and lines has made this style of fishing practical and effective in the world of fly-fishing for trout. Here at Fins & Feathers, we have been working hard to learn and understand the various intricacies ourselves so that we can help with meaningful advice and instruction out of our Bozeman fly shop.
Along the way, we have been having a blast and finding a few fish here and there too. Whether it’s swinging soft-hackles or heavy streamers, we have a Trout Spey solution that works just right.
Join us, March 10, as we add a special edition "Women's Trout Spey 101" to our ever-popular “Fly-Fishing 101” program. This free class is geared towards the beginner, curious, or novice spey angler (no experience required). We’ll cover the gear and rig basics and then get our feet wet and work on understanding the cast and swing.
All you have to do is register by emailing our Bozeman fly shop and we’ll get you signed up! We will have gear for use and demo in case you don’t have your own already. Bring your own waders and wading boots (we have a few for use but not enough for everyone).
The class will run from 10-2 on Sunday, March 10, and is scheduled to take place on the lower Madison river (exact location TBA). Kurt Kruger of Sage Fly Fishing will be the lead instructor along with the crew from Fins & Feathers. Reservations are required and space is limited to 12 lady anglers.
