Fly Fishing Traditions Floating Spey Clinic

On the Lower Yuba River

This Fly Fishing Traditions "Floating Spey Clinic" is an eight hour floating clinic on the Lower Yuba River in my hand-crafted wooden drift boat. This floating spey clinic will focus on what "you" want to learn and will be crafted to meet "your" expectations and "your" experience level as a spey fisher. You will spend the day learning the different spey casts and techniques used for trout and steelhead angling as we drift the Lower Yuba River.
