When it comes to Skagit style spey casting, the Perry Poke is arguably one of the most versatile casts out there. It can be used to produce fishable casts in the trickiest of casting situations, not to mention its just plain fun to throw.
The good folks at Headhunter’s Fly Shop recently put together a killer video with spey guru, Mike McCune, on the finer points of the Perry Poke, but not just any Perry Poke, the downstream Perry Poke.. That is, off your downstream shoulder. It’s a great cast, and if you’ve yet to learn it, we suggest you do so by watching the video below.
