May 10, 2016 General Membership Meeting


Guest Presenter will be William Ciaurro “FlySpoke”




The Merrimack River Valley Chapter will be conducting the last general membership meeting for the season, This month’s presenter will be William Ciaurro “ FlySpoke”


There is something magical for me about all things Spey.  Not just the feeling but the true level of added efficiency of the method.  We will discuss the early beginnings in Scotland to the Pacific North West and now my work covering ultra-light micro rods.


Please join me on May 10 as I conduct “The History and Application of the Two Hand Fly Rod.” I will do my best to offer a complete understanding of the flies, lines, rods and casting styles that are best used to cover our New England conditions and targets.  My hope will be that at the end of my presentation you will have a greater understand and a broadened range about the differences between Spey, Scandinavian Underhand, Skagit, Salter and Micro Nymphing with a two hand rod.


William “ FlySpoke” Ciaurro is a member of the Merrimack River Valley Chapter of Trout Unlimited and is a Certified Casting Instructor and Certified Two Handed Casting Instructor with the International Federation of Fly Fishers with fifty years of experience in fly fishing, casting and fly tying.
