Well-known fly-casting instructor Charles St. Pierre will give a free presentation on speycasting for steelhead and salmon Thursday. The program is sponsored by Puget Sound Fly Fishers.
St. Pierre began steelhead fishing when he was 8 years old and picked up the double-handed spey rod 20 years ago. He is a member of the pro staff for manufacturers like Sage, Rio and Redington. He also is a contract fly tier for Solitude Flies, and teaches speycasting to individuals and groups throughout western North America. Speycasting is a technique, useful on narrow rivers, of casting with only a forward motion. Its name comes from the river Spey in Scotland.
The program will be at Tower Lanes Entertainment Center, 6323 Sixth Ave., Tacoma.
An optional $15 dinner will be offered prior to the presentation and the club’s regular monthly meeting. Activities begin at 6 p.m. Learn more about the club at psff.org.
