Well known Spey Casting instructor Alastair (Ally) Gowans demonstrates with a sequence of 24 shots how to Double Spey cast efficiently to help you to learn Spey casting in an effortless manner. The Double Spey cast is the perfect cast for fishing in a downstream wind. Often when using a sinking line the process of moving the line upstream and into position for what becomes a Roll cast eliminates the need to make a preparatory Roll cast, especially when using a shooting head. Unfortunately this cast normally requires more space than most to the bank side of the angler but this can be reduced significantly for Skagit and shooting heads. Spey Casting Made Easy DVD contains detailed instructions on the physics and ergonomics of most Spey casting techniques and is available for online purchase.
