    While finally acquiring my fishing license the other day at Holiday Market I was informed by the guy working there that some cat that also works there was the first to ever to use a spey rod on the Skagit and in fact taught such notables as Mike Kinney and Dec Hogan how to cast. Wow, I did not know that the spey god above all other spey gods worked just a few miles from my home. I am dumbfounded.

    And at Holiday Market of all places. Poor sap, they probably had him pumping gas and reheating those terrible jojo potatoes up until a few years ago.

    Ever since the Spey rod got so hip, seems like every old homer in the PNW invented it.

    I invented the Perry Poke. Although I never knew it was the PP. In fact, at that time I didn't know there was a name to the various casts I was inventing with the new to me spey rod in my hand many years ago.

    I've seen my brothers execute that cast to perfection in years past. :)
  11. Sounds like the guy should be easy to spot, just look for the dude with his head up his own ass.

    so this is a left hand dominant cast for fishing a river flowing left to right.

    SHOTGUN LIFT, then bring rod past right shoulder ( between you and near bank)

    ARM PIVOT- rod tip now pointing upstream-between you and far bank- line " bear hugs" you almost ... hence the name

    DOWNSTREAM D LOOP- shoot line.

    Easy cast to make- great for tight quarters casting ( consistent 90 ft casts for me )

    I guess I'd have to see it. I'm left hand dominant, so I'm interested, just can't envision it.

    I have used the "mafia cast" a couple of times when the wind comes from my right side. The mafia cast is when the hook hits you in the back of the head.
