Default Bought 11' 8wt Switch, which casting DVD

Thanks for all the input on my prevoius post.

I purchased an Orvis Helios 11' 8 wt Switch rod with the large Arbor V reel. I talked to Rio and they suggested the AFS OutBound in 7/8 weight along with 10' long Spey VersiLeaders, for my application (Steelhead), with minimal room for back casts on medium size creeks and rivers.

Now I need to learn how to cast this setup.

Can someone please reccommend a good DVD on Spey/Switch casting?

Thanks for your help!

I think you should find many good videos on Youtube,but the best thing to do would be to find a forum member in your area who could go fishing with you
That's a nice setup you've got

In Northern California, Jeff Putnam is the most sought after Spey casting instructor. He has a series of DVDs available. His "Switch Rod Casting Techniques" DVD is a comprehensive look on how to use the switch rod effectively.

Rio Modern Spey Casting. Expensive, but worth the money.
