Tailwater Lodge Altmar, NY Salmon River, NY

A Spey Casting Clave and Resource For All

Spey Nation celebrates and supports the 2-handed spey casting and spey fishing culture and fisheries wherever they may be found

We love rivers, and we want them to be the best they can be. If they are suitable for spey casting and swinging flies, even more so.  People who belong to Spey Nation talk about concepts like streamside etiquette, conservation, returning native species to historical watersheds, and angler rotation…and we share our knowledge to everyone who listens. Spey Nation began as a spey clave that offers the unique opportunity for enthusiasts and manufacturers of 2 handed rods to gather in a streamside setting and it lives and grows through our actions.

What Is Spey Nation?

Spey Nation began as a spey clave on the banks of the New York's Salmon River in 2008.  Over ten years we gathered to learn spey fishing techniques from some of the biggest names in 2 handed casting from all 3 Coasts and each other.  Today it lives on through those that attended, presented and displayed at past Spey Nation gatherings and in the expanding territory that is Spey Nation.   Show your support by following us on Facebook or Instagram and use the hashtag #speynation or tag @speynation in your posts to show our unity!
