Course Description

Two Hand Spey Fly Casting
Individual/Group Lesson (1-2 Students - 1 Instructor)

Classes are held in Toronto, and available by request. Please contact for details.

Cost is per person

At the heart of everything, fly casting is truly what makes fly fishing unique and being able to put a fly where you want it is key to success on the water. In our introduction to two handed spey fly casting course you can expect to come away understanding how the components of your setup work together, how to perform a multitude of casts that will work all different conditions, how to shoot line, and more!

This program is geared towards beginner students. We can accommodate up to two students per session (if you have someone who you'd like to accompany you), however we encourage you to book individually as we find that adding students leads to less personal instruction and split attention from the instructor. Pricing is per student, we've set the price to be the same per-person-rate whether booking individually or with a friend to encourage people to book one-on-one lessons as we believe that it will be in the best interest of the student to do so.

In this class we will cover everything you need to know to get fishing including casting in varying wading and wind conditions.

Please note that the time allotted for each class is the average amount of time it takes to cover all topics. Depending on the student we may cover all intended topics early and have time for additional instruction, or we might not complete all intended topics in the allotted time. Course times are firm.

Courses are 2.5 hours long.

Included for use in each lesson:

-Fly rod, reel, line, & leader (if you'd like to use your own you can)

-Flotation hip pack (to be worn at all times when in or around water)

-expert instruction

 

Not included:

-waders & boots, proper boots/footwear with adequate traction must be worn (mandatory)

-brimmed hat or cap (mandatory)

-Meals or snacks

-Beverages or water

-Sunglasses, prescription glasses, or protective eye wear (mandatory)

-Sunscreen

NOTE: The mandatory waiver and student information form will be sent in a follow-up email and must be submitted well in advance of the class date.  Students will not be admitted to any course without a signed waiver, complete student information form, specified safety equipment and a valid Ontario fishing license. While we are not fishing in the lesson, the perception from potential onlookers and MNRF officers may look like we are, to avoid any issues a valid Ontario fishing license is mandatory.

Participants between the ages of 14 and 18 must be supervised by a parent or guardian at all times. Please see the policy below!

Class & Cancellation Policy

Class Policy

  • All attendees must sign the release of liability waiver provided before the course commences

 

  • All attendees must wear the PFDs provided at all times during the course, anytime they are near water. PFDs used for the course are manual-inflated and hip worn.

 

  • All attendees must provide their own and wear protective eyewear (prescription glasses, safety glasses, or sunglasses) and a brimmed hat, and must wear them through the entire duration of the lesson. Any student arriving at the lesson without protective eyewear or a hat will not be admitted to the course.

 

  • All attendees must provide suitable clothing for the weather conditions.

 

  • No attendee will monopolize the instructor's time through requests and questions, as it must be shared equally amongst all students. Again, we do recommend that you register as an individual to maximize your one-on-one instruction time.

 

  • No participants may be under the age of 14. A parent or guardian must supervise any attendees under the age of 18 at all times.

 

  • Any equipment damaged during the course due to negligence of, or misuse by, an attendee will be repaired by Drift Outfitters at the expense of the attendee causing such damage. The fee charged will be the appropriate repair fee per item.

 

  • An individual enrolling in a course to watch the program (and not participate in hands-on portions) will be charged the same fee as full participants, unless they are supervising a minor.  The individual supervising a minor can not join in on the course without also purchasing a ticket - supervision is not participation.

 

Cancellation Policy

  • Cancellations made within 7 days of the course will not be issued a refund. Cancellations made up to 7 days before the course will be issued a full refund.

 

  • Any cancellations of the course due to extreme weather, dangerously high water levels, high winds, or lightning will result in a full refund to the purchaser of the course, or can be used as credit at Drift Outfitters & Fly Shop, and/or deferred to a later date, at the discretion of the student.

 

Safety is our number one priority. Proper footwear and eye protection (hat & sunglasses) must be worn at all times, pfd's must be worn when in and around water. Students will be instructed in addition on how to behave around water including wading safety, freeing of snags, and hook setting (the last two points are mandated by our insurance provider). Students must fill out a student information form, waiver, and agree to terms, including Covid 19 related conditions before any instruction takes place.
