Rene Vaz. Former NZ Fly Fishing Champion and STANIC Qualified Two Handed Casting Instructor




Chris' exclusive, local niche. Double Handed rods are a great way to get big flies deep, make long casts with ease from confined spaces, and open up the potential of our larger rivers. As one of New Zealands most recognised Spey Casters and qualified instructors, let Chris introduce you to the art of Spey casting on the renowned, big-water rainbow trout fishery of the Upper Clutha river.

Using 11’6" two-handed Switch rods set up with Pacific Northwest / Skagit line systems, or compact Scandinavian style heads Chris will introduce you to the fundamentals of spey casting, and effective techniques to maximize the potential of large water fisheries. For the more experienced spey angler Chris can troubleshoot your casting technique, and introduce you to the finer points of swinging flies.




  The skills you will learn are readily transferable to any big water fishery, such as NZ’s famed Tongariro river, or the large, braided waters of the Canterbury region, as well as the winter steel-head waters of Canada, the United States and BC. Spey techniques can also be introduced to your every day single handed fly fishing endeavors, improving casting efficiency and adaptability for multiple situations.

efficiency. In Short, You Will Catch More Fish!
