Interview with Master Spey Caster Simon Gawesworth

January 11, 2012 By: Benjamin Clary

“Atlantic salmon and ale,” says Simon Gawesworth when asked what are his favorite species and favorite beverage.  Being from the UK, neither should come as a surprise.  In an interview by Diana Rudolph, Simon covers a short list of topics important to him—among them comparing the river access in the United States to that of the UK—and offers some spey casting tips.  As the marketing manager of Rio, as well as a very well respected angler, anything Simon says is worth a gander.
