RiverQuest Charters and the Muskegon River Lodge are pleased to offer a two day Spey casting school. Designed for fly fishermen who desire to learn to Spey cast from top Spey casting instructors and then imbed the skills they’ve learned so that at the close of the class, the fishermen are river ready, the Muskegon River Lodge Spey Casting School is a unique learning experience.
With two instructors, one of whom is a nationally recognized Spey casting teacher and the other a professional fly fishing guide who teaches Spey casting on the Muskegon River and with a limit of six (6) students, the school seeks to give enrollees a level of Spey casting expertise beyond that produced in day schools. Spey casting is challenging, but with two days of instruction, coaching, and on stream practice, students will finish the class competent and comfortable with the Spey rod—just in time for the fall steelhead run.

The two instructors are Peter Humphreys and Captain Steve Kuieck. Peter is one of the few instructors internationally to hold FFF Single, Two Handed and Masters Certification in Spey Casting. Peter has Spey fished in Norway, Scotland, New Brunswick, and British Columbia. Steve Kuieck owns RiverQuest Charters and is a principal in the Muskegon River Lodge. Steve has a solid track record of successfully teaching clients how to Spey cast as he guides them for fall steelhead on the Muskegon River.
Students will stay one night at the Muskegon River Lodge with its 12.5 wooded acres and 400 feet of frontage on the Muskegon River. The school features instruction in the lodge, on its grassy grounds, in the river in front of the lodge, and in RiverQuest jet boats. Students will learn how to cast and manage line while wading and fly fishing from a boat—essential for large rivers such as the Muskegon.
All the amenities of the Muskegon River Lodge and more are the students’ to enjoy— breakfasts, quality hot lunches, and extraordinary, premium gourmet dinner. Sauna, hot tub, lounge and game room, large screen HD television, poker and pool tables, and humidor promise memorable evenings of conversation and relaxation. Plus, Spey fly tying demonstrations and informal slide shows of Spey fly fishing adventures will enrich days ends all the more. If you’re a fly tier, feel free to bring your vise and materials and tie along.
So, please consider joining us for a fly fishing school that will teach you skills you’ll use lifelong. Meet and befriend fly fishermen who, like you, seek to grow their fly fishing knowledge and skills, all the while having a great time in a fantastic setting with some of the best instructors in the country.
