I heard from a reader just yesterday on a common struggle that many of us have with spey casting, anchor placement. I wanted to take a few minutes to start a post that hopefully helps shed a little light on how you might get more consistent with this technique.
I will continue to update this post, but wanted to get something out today so all of us can have an action item to work on this week.
Spey Casting Resources
Resource #1: The first resource I want to share is a video that talks specifically about anchor placement from Tom Larimer. He talks in detail about how slack affects your spey cast directly.
Resource #2: I also wanted to provide a link to an article I put together specifically for the switch rod. Take a look at the section on casting for a few more good video resources that should help out.
Resource #3: Here is a video from Scott Howell that covers the details of skagit casting. It’s also included in my article above, but I wanted to give you a direct link here. It’s about 20 minutes long but should give you a few tips that will help out.
Resource #4: George Cook has a new you tube channel at Spey TV. Here is one video on the different Snap casts.
That should give you enough video content for the day? Now, your call to action is to get out and practice before you get on the river. Then practice some more. Do you have additional resources or tips on anchor placement. Leave a comment below with your best tip or resource.
