Spey Casting Books, Videos

June 5, 2004 By: Marshall Cutchin

Attention Spey Casters and Spey-Casting Wannabe’s:
There’s a new book coming out by Simon Gawesworth entitled Spey Casting (Stackpole Books, August 2004) that looks to be a very good one; Thomas McGuane writes the introduction. Mr. Gawesworth is a legendary spey teacher and is the author of RIO’s “Basic Spey and Two Handed Fly Rod Casting” pamphlet that is included with every spey line they sell. RIO Products also markets two videos: “Basic Spey and Two Handed Fly Rod Casting” with Jim Vincent, and “International Spey Casting” with Simon Gawesworth, Jim Vincent, and Leif Stavmo.
And Mel Kreiger has a good spey casting video out that you can buy bundled with his Essence of Fly Casting II for $29 on Amazon.com — pretty good deal, I think.
