Casting with a two-handed rod in the style that dates back to mid-1800s Scotland is no easy challenge. It’s now popular for all types of fishing, especially when obstructions block the backcast and for all kinds of fish--trout, striped bass, salmon, and steelhead.

Champion spey caster Simon Gawesworth teaches the switch cast, single spey, double spey, snake roll, snap T, and devon switch; discusses the differences between traditional and modern techniques; and recommends the right rods and lines.

“Simon Gawesworth . . . has studied the physics of spey casting with an eye to removing the voodoo that confuses students, and subjected his theory to practice in innumerable casting schools. . . . He has a capacity for encouragement, clear explanation, humorous and helpful analogies, homilies, and witticisms--all with the purpose of teaching and improving spey casting.”
--Thomas McGuane
