Some things I’ve learned about Scandinavian Spey Casting

I’ve spent my entire summer trying to learn to understand Scandinavian Casting.  My friend and mentor Janusz Panicz now says I am now officially Scandi casting,  BAD Scandi casting he reminds me, but nevertheless he did describe it as Scandi casting, so I thought I would share some of the things I am in the process of learning as I struggle through.  

I recently told Janusz I was having trouble getting my brain wrapped around the Scandi concept.  He told me you don’t need brains, you need hours and hours of practice.  So I’m a perfect candidate.

    1. The style I’m trying to emulate does not seem to require a shotgun lift unless I am missing something. A pronounced shotgun lift is very helpful when casting longer lines (for me) I would watch Janusz switch cast video of on his youtube channel.
      For underhand casting definitely not, at least that I’m aware of.

  1. That sounds like a pretty good endorsement IMO. I say keep it up. I am curious if you think the arm strap you utilized was of any great help?

    1. Yes Jim I think the arm strap is a good idea. I had mine on a little tight. A belt or wading belt figure eighted and buckled will work. I would like to hear how it goes for you if you try it out. My top hand is pretty dominant so Its been a battle.
