Beginner Spey and Demo Day
On Friday May 4th, we will be offering two great opportunities for angler involvement starting at 3 p.m. If you are new to spey casting and would like to learn from some masters, join our Beginners Spey Clinic. Space for beginners is somewhat limited, so please contact us to sign up.
Also on Friday at 3 p.m., we will be hosting a wide open spey casting and industry demo session. Come one, come all. Show up in waders and bring your spey rod for some one on one instruction or try out demos from Winston, G Loomis, Sage/Redington, Echo and Loop. This a great chance to dial in your current set up or choose from some great rods and lines to build a new outfit.

Cinco de Speyo Saturday May 5th 2018
On Saturday May 5th, vendor set up will begin at 9 am. Presentations from the biggest names in fly fishing will kick off at 10 a.m. and finish up around 5 p.m. Then we are planning some post presentation fun. In the middle of the day, we will take a break for some tacos. While presentations are going on, guests can also visit vendors to peruse their gear, demo rods and lines, mingle with the pros and maybe even coax them into the water for some extra casting pointers. One of the great things about our event is that it is casual and intimate enough that you can hang out and socialize with some of the great personalities in our fly fishing world.

If you have any questions or need more information about our event, please reach out to us. We’d love to hear from you. Please contact for questions.

I'll be there, bombing some casts into one of the best trout rivers in the world, as well as one of the best to present a swung fly. 

See you there!


  1. So...perhaps a dumb the beginning of May a good time to swing up some trout on the MO? I'm into presentations, etc as much as the next enthusiast, but would definitely want to spend time on the river.

    1. i'm no expert on that river, but May should be good for swinging and all other tactics as it's dam controlled. Plus, it just works into everyone's schedule best that weekend
