Simon Gawesworth on Spey Casting

April 13, 2006 By: Marshall Cutchin

“‘The essential benefits of Spey casting are one: It’s a very successful way of casting with any obstruction behind you whether a single-handed rod or two-handed rod,’ Gawesworth said. ‘And two: It’s the fastest most efficient change of direction with a fly line. Much more efficient than an overhead cast, so even if you have nothing behind you, you can do a snake roll and change direction instantaneously.'” Wally Zimmer in the Jackson Hole, Wyoming Star Tribune.
