SPEY FISHING IN ALASKA.
One of our biggest passions at Cooper Landing Fishing Guide, LLC is Spey Fishing or Spey Casting. Spey Casting is an age-old fly fishing technique that can be accomplished with a single-hand fly rod or a two-hand fly rod. Spey Casting, specifically Skagit Casting, is the most effective way to swing big flies on heavy sink tips for big fish in Alaska on the Kenai River! Spey Casting is easy to learn and is effective for Rainbow Trout, Dolly Varden, King Salmon, Sockeye Salmon and Silver Salmon.
Be sure to check out your YouTube Channel as we grow our library of Spey Fishing Videos, Fly Tying Demos and fun on the water!
Whether you are a new Spey angler or have been Spey casting for years, we really enjoy sharing the many ways to have a great day on the water with a two-handed rod!
