Possibly the most instructional fly fishing DVD ever about Spey casting and salmon fishing.

Spey casting has become increasingly popular in recent years due to being discovered by anglers internationally. For more than a hundred years many Scottish fly fishermen have fished almost exclusively with the Spey, Double Spey, Switch and Roll casts.

Price £25.00 (free postage).

Modern materials brought salmon fly fishing with two handed "Spey" rods within reach of a far larger audience. This combined with plastic lines they made casting much easier, less tiresome and with the new technology the Spey casts themselves evolved and improved. Shooting a decent amount of line was difficult with silk lines, however modern long belly weight forward lines depend almost entirely upon this technique for distance and with the new materials the casts have become much easier to perform. Styles vary but to be proficient there are certain substantive rules that must be adhered to regardless of style, those are the rules of physics. Everyone is built differently and it is the professional instructors job to help students to observe the physics, make the cast in an efficient style and eliminate any faults.

This DVD is a rare opportunity to gain knowledge and experience from Ally, one of the World’s finest fly fishermen and fly casting instructors.

The "making Spey casting easy" approach is obvious, so it is absolutely a worthwhile investment. I even got a few tips from your sequence on Ally's shrimp! Henning Lund, Norway.
DVD arrived and I must compliment you for the work you did. The instruction is clear, Spey casting is explained in a non-cryptic way and everything runs very smoothly. The catch of the salmon is really breathtaking and I have never ever seen a video where it is shown the real moment in which the salmon takes. Superb. Armando Quazzo, Italy.

Got your dvd on spey casting, brilliant! I was self taught as are most anglers and can cast a fair line however the dvd has helped me big time in relation in highlighting some of the faults that I currently practice ie dipping the rod in the back cast to create a concave loop instead of drawing the rod straight back thanks again. Stephen Mahood.

Thanks again for the DVD. We have enjoyed watching it many times over. With the fishing being a bit slow up here I sometimes just put it on to watch you hooking that fish in the River Earn. David Murray (sen & jun)

Your DVD has arrived and been enjoyed.  You certainly have a good voice for instructing and I like your accent on body movement. Good job! So I'm a believer! We send our best to you and wish you great success with the DVD ----- and this season's fishing. Joan.

Just a note to say how good your DVD is. Just back from the Tweed. Got a 9lbs, springer from under trees thanks to your Spey casting DVD. Bob Mitchell.

Excellent DVD. You should be proud of it, not only a very professional presentation, but great teaching. I will recommend it to everyone I see although many will think they know it all anyway!! Innes Smith.
