Spey & two Handed Rod Casting Instructor
Placing a fully laid out cast and engaging a wild fish – be it a summer steelhead on a Columbia River tributary, winter steelhead in the rainforest, a salmon on the coast or an eager trout in your local stream – through a pulsing two-hand rod is the stuff of dreams and an experience every angler should enjoy at least once.
Simply put, Daniel has an obsession with steelhead, salmon, the swung fly and the functional art of spey casting. In addition to his personal time on the water and managing his writing ( Jack’s Experience Trading ), Daniel is the Communications and Outreach Coordinator for the Idaho Wildlife Federation, the Conservation Editor for Swing the Fly and lends a hand curating the spey program at ANGLERS Fly Shop. He firmly believes conservation is not an accessory but an essential part of the experience of the modern spey angler. Because of that, Daniel will be donating 10-percent of all casting lesson proceeds to the wild fish advocacy group of the client’s choice.
