Fly Fishing for American Shad

Affordable DIY Fishing Trips to South Florida 

Being addicted to the tug of a fish on the end of your line, Florida is the place to be. It is called one of the fishing capital of the world for a reason and I want to share with you on how to go about experiencing this fishery on a budget.

A full week of DIY fishing is possible with $1000 or less. This includes hotel, rental car, flight and fishing licenses.

Spey Casting and Two Handed Rods
I have been spey casting and using two handed rods for 4 years now and it has allowed me to enjoy fly fishing more. I have been able to fish areas that I couldn't have before with a more traditional single handed setup. Spey casting and fishing with two handed rods whether in freshwater or saltwater has its advantage.
This presentation will cover the basics of getting into the spey casting world and the fishing applications from trout spey, spey casting in the salt, overhead casting in the salt with 2 handed and much more.
