With Skagit lines and longer rods being the ideal setup for fall and winter steelheading, I thought this video tip from Pete Kutzer—from the “Steelhead & Salmon Fly Fishing” chapter on the Orvis Fly Fishing Learning Center—would be appropriate this week. And since steelheading involves a lot of casting and little fish-playing, it’s an ideal time to practice your Spey technique.

    Thanks for the refresher. I was on NY’s Salmon River and had time to practice casting with my switch rod. Seemed ok for about 50% of my attempts. Going up fir steelhead in a couple of weeks. Will practice on my local NH River using Pete’s instructions and tips. Again, thanks!
