Default Great scandi casting video

I was searching YouTube today for some spey casting instructional videos when I came across this particular one. It is an extremely helpful, professional, and intuitive video by Henrik Mortensen on the basics of the Scandinavian casting style.

If anyone else here is just learning how to use 2 handed rods, I highly recommend taking a look at the link below.

I've watched that one a few times but I need to watch it more; I also just went through the 3 DVD set "Rio's Modern Spey Casting" with Simon Gawesworth which I highly recommend. Simon does the opposite with his right foot back but Henrik's idea makes sense to keep from rotating too much with the D-loop. I'm having lots of fun learning!

You have to also think that in this video, he's doing a lot of casting on the bank, itself. Henrik is my biggest influence in casting. Either way, Simon is coming to one of my river's in the spring. I'm headed down to join the clinic and learn from one of the masters!

I've watched many instructional videos online but I really like Henrik simple explanation and put them into practice.

I am interested in buying that DVD, but can you tell me if there was something that you didn't like about it?

No, I am very pleased with the set; lots of good stuff for the money. (3 CD set RIO'S MODERN SPEYCASTING)

To be honest, I found the video somewhat lacking (not enough technique). The video didn't help me improve my casting.

My two cents,

Randy
