A Catch & Release Fly Fishing Guide since 1985, Walt Geryk is an instructor and innovator in fly fishing for Steelhead, Atlantic Salmon, Pacific Salmon, Trout, and Striped Bass.
In 2007 his love of two-handed fly fishing prompted him to eventually hang-up his traditional guiding and focus exclusively on single and two-handed casting and fishing instruction.
Now known as The Spey Doctor, Walt has spent thousands of hours perfecting his knowledge as to the “how’s and why’s” of Spey fishing. He happily passes his knowledge to his students and in conversation with others interested. His unique ability to identify and simplify problems people have with their casting and fishing techniques has earned him praise from not only the average fisherman but from some of the titans in the industry.
Slowly and unknowingly, Walt has become one of the “Godfather’s of American Spey”.

Thanks for a terrific time on the water.
Your passion for two handed casting and teaching was quite evident and infectious.
I really liked the concept of coaching your fishing buddy.  You conveyed the ability to analyze and critique the cast very well. With your help, I felt like I progressed from uncertainty to some sort of proficiency over a short time.

Hi Walt,
Just a note to thank you for the great day spent learning the two handed  Spey Cast.  As you know I had never tried it and your clinic really got me started on the right track.  There is a lot to it, river right, river left, retracing your cast and what I liked the most watching the fly turn right before the forward cast.  You have a great approach for teaching the method and coaching through the steps.  The Deerfield River is an ideal classroom.  Really enjoyed the day.
Many thanks, John Tarrant, Cleverdale, NY
