Peter Charles – Spey Casting.

The Skagit Spey Casting Method

“As one of three styles of Spey casting, Skagit Spey casting features short, heavy shooting head lines with dense sinktips and large flies. Typical casts used in the style are the Snap T, Double Spey, and Perry Poke. Skagit Spey casts differ from regular Spey casting by their use of sustained anchors to help load the rod. As a rule of thumb Skagit shooting heads tend to be between 2 ½ to 3 ½ times the length of the rod one is using. Most commonly, these shooting heads are floaters, but recently intermediate densities have become available. With the addition of various densities of sinktip sections, they allow the angler to fish a sunk fly efficiently at a consistent depth. They are considered easier to learn to cast, due to their heavy weight and shorter length.”

In this six hour course, we will introduce the client to the basics of the Skagit style.

We will cover the tackle itself, the manner of fishing, and how to properly set up the line and sink tips.

We will teach the three typical Skagit casts:

  • Perry Poke;
  • Snap T or Circle Spey;
  • Double Spey.

The casts will be taught using the sustained anchor method with dedicated Skagit lines. We will be conducting the casting with sinktips in place as this is primarily a sink tip style.
