Who invented skagit casting

#2
I think Skagit casting has evolved and has had multiple "influencers". Only to mention a few that come to mind, Jimmy Green, Marlow Bumpas, Harry Lemire, Ed Ward, Dec Hogan, Scott O'Donnell, Mike McCune, Mike Kinney.........................................................................................................................................................................

I think Ed coined the term if I am not mistaken in an article for the GGAC?

I forget his name right at the moment but the guy who built the first Skagit lines that Dec Hogan talks about in his book. That is who I would give credit to. Dec taught O'Donnell and Ed Ward how to cast ;)

Hey, Spaz, say hi to salmo for me would ya !! :):):)
no, Al Gore invented internet speyfishermen! My mistake. Thanks for setting that straight.

Real skagit casting...now that sprang forth fully formed from the head of Zeus.
I think that's what Salmo_G said, he was there drinking aquavit with Jimmy Green when it happened. I think there were aliens involved too, unless I'm getting my conspiracy theories mixed up.

My guess is many have had a hand in Skagit casting history ...

... But it's pretty much understood within the two handed community that none have personally given more hands-on <> One-on-one education on Skagit casting theory and technique then Mike Kinney.

And I agree with Obe-Wan <> In regards to Mikes influence and innovations given to the two handed community: Skagit casting and technique are just the tip of the ice burg of Mike's overall knowledge that he has unselfeshly shared with many of us.

Myself included ...
