What is the difference between Scandi and Underhand Casting? First, I would like to thank Llandogo who had this to say about my Underhand casting Goran Anderson style Video: I have used the underhand style of casting for many years and your interpretation is excellent. I would like to make a few comments though. […]
My favorite cheap running line is Berkley Big Game Ultragreen #40lbs test. Its cheap and shoots great. It sinks though, but for the price thats not a deal breaker. It requires good stretching just like the more expensive Varivas Airs which doesn’t sink as much and shoots like crazy. Varivas AIRS, a monofilament line has […]
I stuck my neck out and did an Underhand Casting Goran Anderson Style Youtube Video with the caveat that I’m not really an underhand casting guy. I have learned much from my correspondence with Janusz Panicz when he taught me about Modern Scandinavian Casting these past couple years. He helped me to understand when I […]
I’ve never met Lee Davison of Snake River Outfitters fame and Ballistic Spey lines but word on the street, or on the river, is that he is a respected competition caster who won the senior Division at the much Ballyhooed Spey-O-Rama, deep wading, gnarly angle change, nasty wind, long distance Spey casting tourney last year. He […]
How to single Spey cast video, Instructional, tutorial, but not exactly legendary. I made this to help to people learn to cast something longer than a compact Scandi, or Skagit shooting head. Really this will cover the bases for all spey lines but I know it will help you if you’re moving up from […]
I had a chance to fish with my buddies Deathstar lined with a Skagit Flight and a MOW tip. Dang, I wish I had never sold mine. One of the most fun rods ever to cast. If you still have one don’t upgrade. I have yet to find one.
My son and I’ve been fishing the Anglers Roost 11′ 5/6 -4 (piece) IM6 blank that I rolled into a custom switch rod. Actually its his rod, we built it together and now I have confiscated it and it rocks This little dude is amazing. We used it Swinging for summer steelhead with a Steve […]
Ok, short but sweet: Use lightish sink tips to start with. Use moderate flies keep your coils off of the water as much as possible More later. Gotta run.
I had the opportunity to fish and cast with the OPST Commando head coupled with a 10’ Micro Skagit floating head and I had a ball. I don’t necessarily recommend this set up as ideal because the heavy body pretty much overpowered the dainty tip but it was fun to play with put together some […]
Here is a very well done video presentation that needs, and deserves some love. I think you will enjoy it. I did. And I know it took a ton of work!
