Bear Trail Spey

An Introduction To Two-Handed Fly Fishing

Story by Melissa Norris and Troy Letherman

The truth is I am damaged goods. After decades of baseball/softball, dodgeball, skiing, fly fishing and a general “push it until it can’t go any more” mentality, my shoulder is just about thrashed. Once a week I even see a myofascialist (Thomas Bailly at Arctic Chiropractic is an enormous help). I am still playing these sports, albeit not as well as I used to, but that constantly nagging shoulder led me to a desire to be able to fish with less pain than normal. I have heard from several people that Spey casting is a great solution. And in Alaska it also helps with the big-water dilemma. This content is available for subscribers only.
