Sandy River Spey Clave: JC

John Christensen or “JC” is a die hard steelheader born and raised in central Idaho who relocated to Oregon to find a few more fish with sea lice. JC grew up fly fishing the blue ribbon trout streams of central Idaho from the ripe age of 5 years old. He has been swinging flies for steelhead since the early 2000’s and has guided on the rivers of Oregon, Montana, Idaho, and Alaska. He has fished all over the world from Belize to British Columbia with single hand rods and Spey rods. He found his passion for steelhead on the Clearwater River in northern Idaho, swinging long belly lines for some of the largest steelhead in the lower 48 states. He currently works as the fly manager for The Fly Fishing Shop in Welches, Oregon, and guides and fishes on his days off. He’s a pretty fishy individual and can use a Spey rod to land a fly on the opposite bank of a river with the best of 'em.

JC's program is entitled: "Forming The Perfect Loop". Whether casting with a single-hand rod or two-hand rod, fly casting is about generating fly line speed. On the forward cast, a narrow loop will retain fly line speed longer than a wide loop. JC will disclose how to control the width and shape of your forward loop: Friday, May 13, 10:00 - 10:30am.

Sandy River Spey Clave: Leslie Ajari

Leslie Ajari grew up fishing the local streams and rivers with a fly rod in Truckee, CA. While attending college in the Bay area, she was introduced to the sport of steelheading. Since then, she has spent most of her free time pursuing the art of Spey casting and catching steelhead on the swing. Currently she guides in Northern California and Southern Oregon for Confluence Outfitters. Leslie lives in Southern Oregon with her dog Marlee and boyfriend Dax Messett.

Her web site GalGoneFishing says: "Spey casting and swinging flies is one of my favorite ways to catch steelhead and all of the clients I have introduced to it so far have quickly become addicted. When guiding steelhead, this is normally my program. Trout streams provide many educational opportunities for rigging, casting and fly selection."

Beginning Spey Casts, and Fishing The Imperfect Cast: Friday, May 13, 10:30 - 11:00am.

This should be of interest to most beginning anglers, because that is what many of them do -- commentary by MB
