SPEY NATION RETURNS AUGUST 9-11 2024

Save the date! Especially Saturday, August 10th when Spey Nation will feature a wide variety of free presentations, lunch, local and industry vendor booths in addition to our private casting classes, to celebrate and bring together the Great Lakes spey community responsible for this annual gathering.

The largest gathering of spey enthusiasts in the region is proud to once again be based out of the Tailwater Lodge/ Pineville Boat Launch. Exact locations of classes and other events will be determined soon but, rest assured, will be on immediately surrounding banks of the Salmon River.
