Salmon Lodge, our sister lodge on the Grand Cascapedia is pleased to host the Atlantic Salmon Spey Fishing School from June 2 to June 9, 2013, featuring Topher Browne and Greg Pearson as instructors.
You will learn (or refine) four casts on Day One and Day Two of the school: the C-Spey, the Double Spey, the Snake Roll, and the Single Spey. Five days of guided spey fishing on the Grand Cascapedia and Bonaventure rivers complete your week. Evening seminars will address the benefits of Traditional, Scandinavian and Skagit lines in addition to tactics and techniques for Atlantic salmon in Canada and Europe.
The 2013 Atlantic Salmon Spey Fishing School is limited to eight anglers. Class tuition covers all instruction, guides, meals and lodging at the newly renovated Salmon Lodge on the Grand Cascapedia. For more information, please contact Glenn LeGrand (firstname.lastname@example.org).
