The Susitna watershed’s big water is ideal for casting long two-hand fly rods. It also has many roadside streams that call for shorter switch rods and single-hand Spey casting techniques. Having these tools in your arsenal will open up water that has been out of reach by being too far away or limited space for a backcast.

If casting two-hand rods is your preferred fishing style, or if you would like to learn a new casting technique, this Saturday’s 4th annual Fly Fishing Fair and Spey Clave, hosted by Alaska Fly Fishers, is a great opportunity for free instruction from some of the best casting instructors in the state. This year’s event is being held on Saturday, June 3 at the scenic Russian River Ferry Crossing in Cooper Landing.
