Spey Casting (In Its’ Simplest Form, Big Advantages in Coverage)

Evan Muncy Looking at the Business End of a Z Axis

SPEY CASTING INTIMIDATION FACTOR

I don’t propose to instruct you on the finer points of a two hander. I have a couple rigs and suspect I will be spending the rest of my life trying to remember all the moves beyond the C spey, the Skagit Double spey, the Perry Poke etc……There are numerous movements involved in Spey Casting and if you know them well it is probably akin to telling someone how to ride a bike…   But, I know this…the basic moves of the spey rod produce amazing results with minimal effort…even for a novice. Like buying a one hander, if you can afford at least a mid range priced set up, do so. Don’t be intimidated by those waving the magic wand…take a lesson or too, be patient with yourself, very patient. Pull with that bottom hand more than push with the top and have fun with a sloppy 70-80′ cast with the bank high to your rear. Get better and the drift is yours to explore and understand. Read the works of Larimer, Hogan et al and watch Ward’s dvd, check out YouTube vid’s…be inspired. Go to the river and do not compare and be frustrated (unless you are blessed)…just quietly and patiently work on the basics and soon enough you too will try to explain just how you ride a bike. Buy Ed Ward’s Skagit Master DVD and watch over and over…then get out there. Excellent fly tying info re tying Intruder’s

    Looks like there is some “eye candy” for us ladies after all. The picture of that guy in the boat made me shiver…but not with anything more than cold!

      Well Isabelle, I have encouraged all the women to provide inspiring men that are involved in fly fishing. So far I received semi naked calendar material of studs in Santa hats and assorted pictures of barely clad men none holding a fly rod. At least the beautiful, sexy women within this site are making a pretense or legitimately holding a rod or fish….I will continue to look, but of course, it is a bit odd for me to be selecting what I think is the appropriate male eye candy for you cabin bound gals. I will welcome your input… 😉
