    Bushwhack,

    This event is FREE! There will be six 30-minute presentations on spey casting followed by 2 - 3 hours where you can work on your casting with the guest presenters. This is a great opportunity to get free casting insturction from some of the best in the business.

    For more information, including a schedule of events, please visit https://www.facebook.com/events/740018756039241/

    I hope to see you there.

    I attended this event. It was run very well and I appreciate all who put it together. If I can I will make an effort to attend again next year. Thanks to all who put it together. I know Alaska Flyfishers, Mt. View Sports, and Bass Pro Shop all contributed. Not to mention all the experts who attended and gave lessons. Thanks to all.
