Ally Gowans demonstrates with a sequence of 19 shots how to use the Snap C cast efficiently to help you to learn Spey casting in an effortless manner. This cast is most used when the wind is upstream, it is an excellent cast for fishing from a high bank and it is the preferred cast for making big changes of direction, particularly with shooting heads. With practice it is possible cast from any direction to any direction within a 180 degree arc. With some adaptation it can be used to make casts with a minimum of space behind. Spey Casting Made Easy DVD contains detailed instructions on the physics and ergonomics of most Spey casting techniques and is available for online purchase.
