spey casting tips
When was the last time you listened to a podcast or interview that really moved you to do something?  Maybe it was a video that convinced you to actually get out and take action?  How about something as simple as Spey Casting Tips?

In episode 009 of the Fly Fishing Podcast I had the pleasure of interviewing Simon Gawesworth who is one of the biggest names in fly fishing today.  Simon breaks down spey lines in detail including what's new this year and what he sees in the future of spey.

In regards to spey casting, does this sound familiar at all: "Sometimes I get a nice spey cast out there but about half the time my line fails to shoot out straight on the water." "I end up checking my line after a short session to notice that I have a number of "wind" knots in my leader." "My cast lacks the...
breaking your wrist
Over the years, I've taught a lot of people how to cast a single handed fly rod.  By far, the biggest issue I see is breaking your wrist.  Don't get me wrong, there are times when you will move your wrist, and I'll talk about that in a bit.

Brian Chou said it best in a recent interview I had with him:  Pick a rod and line setup and fish it! He's basically saying that sure, you need a balanced outfit,...
spey casting
Do you ever find yourself in a position where there is great water that you want to fish, but there is some big obstruction that is presenting a spey casting challenge for you?  Maybe it’s a vertical bank or a bunch of trees that just doesn’t allow you to set up a good D Loop? With spey casting there are...

Do you feel like your spey casting is perfect?  Do you feel like there is no room for improvement?  Yeah, me either.  If you're like me, you feel like you have a lot of room for improvement. I've been fly fishing my entire life but only recently picked up spey casting.  I have caught a lot of fish on the...
