  1. Hi everyone the Hook and Hackle is hosting a Casting Day on June 9th and 10th. Sorry for the late post, however there are limited seats! Please let me know or contact Susan directly (simbs@shaw.ca). There are some fantastic instructors attending : Ruben Breitkreutz Ruben is a Certified Casting Instructor with Fly Fishers International. He has taught flycasting for years and is skilled and proficient in both single-handed and spey casting. He teaches both in Canada and the United States and is a frequent and in demand instructor at many casting events and for many casting organizations. Ruben is a manufacturer’s representative for Rio, Sage and Reddington. Ruben taught the spey classes at last years Casting Day and received rave reviews from participants. We are delighted to have Ruben join us again this year for a day of single-handed casting on Saturday and a day of Spey Instruction on Sunday. Jim and Lynda McLennan Jim and Lynda began fly fishing together in the 1970s. Married since 1977, they have operated McLennan Fly Fishing full time since 2004, and in that time have taught thousands of people the fine art of fly fishing.
