Casting with a two-handed rod in the style that dates back to mid-1800s Scotland is no easy challenge. It's now popular for all types of fishing, especially when obstructions block the backcast, and for all kinds of fish--trout, striped bass, salmon, and steelhead. Champion spey caster Simon Gawesworth teaches the switch cast, single spey, double spey, snake roll, snap T, and devon switch; discusses the differences between traditional and modern techniques; and recommends the right rods and lines.
