…and the spey casting video knowledge continues to flow!
Today we’ve got a great nugget of casting wisdom from Brian Styskal. Brian has been part of our ridiculously deep spey casting talent at Alaska West for the past couple of years now; his third place finish at this year’s Spey-O-Rama is one of many feathers in his cap. He’s a super guide and spends lots of his fall around the Klickitat River.
Anyhow, when learning to spey cast, a lot of anglers have a hard time using their bottom hand properly. Early on, the focus tends to be on using the bottom hand during the forward stroke. In today’s video, Brian takes things one step further and talks about using the bottom hand in every part of your spey cast.
- Use it on the lift and when placing your anchor.
- Use it to drive power into the sweep.
- Think of the bottom hand as the source of power and the top hand as the fulcrum – during every part of your cast.
