Specific instruction is at the heart of this spey fishing production that will help you visualize the skills needed to bring winter steelhead to your fly.

In addition you will learn how to alter your presentation in different water depths and flows.
Cold water spey angling is a far different game than in summer so a portion of “Winter Spey Strategies” is devoted to reading water. You will get the particulars on not only where to look for steelhead but how cold water changes their behavior, and consequently changes how you must pursue them.
