There is also this video YouTube - Spey girl

I like this quote from the website of Alex Ivanovic's website, http://www.alexivanovic.com/, that speaks to both Jeong Park and Alex's wife, Jelena AKA Speygirl:

"There is no more graceful and healthful accomplishment for a lady than fly fishing, and there is no reason why a lady should not in evey respect rival a gentleman in the gentle art."

Both the gals mentioned earlier were very good casters.
And I will never tire of watching Lefty Kreh. The man encompasses all that is right with our sport.
