Richard Ostrowski, THCI

The Maine Spey Casting School   is focused to teach the traditional and easy way to spey cast by powering the caster with the technique to present the fly to the fish using a Single Spey, Double Spey, Snake Roll,   Snap T,  and other two-handed casts, all of which are derived from the simple Roll Cast.  The traditional spey cast is the fundamental basis for all types of two-handed casting.  Classes for individuals or groups of 3-5  are at a very reasonable cost. 


Richard Ostrowski is a Certified Two-Handed Casting Instructor (THCI) and the first person in Maine to be awarded that particular certification from Fly Fishers International (FFI), a network of the best casting instructors in the world.  THCI candidates must pass both an oral and performance test that demonstrates their two-handed teaching and casting abilities, as well as the skill to analyze faults and give clear corrections.  He has something in common with Alexander Grant too; he has a passion for violins as well as two-handed rods!


With a lifetime experience fly fishing and over 20 years as a spey caster, Rich understands the frustration of  achieving the perfecting cast, and most important, he can correct mistakes that may stall one's progress.  A good teacher will  accelerate your progress and correct flaws.  Learning to spey cast correctly is truly an investment in yourself!


Put your hands on a two-handed rod and consider giving spey casting a whirl!
