Anyone willing to lend me the Skagit Master Video? I will pay you back shipping fees- and a couple of bucks. Thanks.
When dealing with "Skagit casting " I was told... It only adressed skagit . There are some out there who were less than thrilled with it as a whole ...The best video I've seen dealing with spey casting. Great camera work and analysis/presentation by Ed.
Hell Stewart - I'm in south Everett and would have loaned you the video for free . . . as long as you bring Avatar-Babe along when you pick it up.
Stew, if that's the lil Woman in your avitar, you have now obtained "Rock Star " status along with Mingo !!!!Oh, Thanks doublespey! My Avatar-Babe is busy taking care of the kids, and fetching up a cold Heineken. Sorry.
Sigh ...... wrong answer ..... :>( But if fully understand the "taking care of the kids." "Ah yes, my little Chickidee; A little more Maderia my Dear?" (Fill in the 's******-s******s.')Oh, Thanks doublespey! My Avatar-Babe is busy taking care of the kids, and fetching up a cold Heineken. Sorry.
Hey Brian , meant no offense, hope none taken :thumb:I probably wasn't clear either. I never claimed it was a comprehensive speycasting video. If you find one out there, please let me know.
While the video is about Skagit casting, i've watched just about every Speycasting video (except the latest from the House of Hardy's top rod - forgot his name) and consider it the most comprehensive when it comes to analyzing (skagit) casting technique ~and~ their application in the constantly changing river environment we all share.
All spey videos, from Henrik Mortensen's Scandi techniques to Derek Brown's traditional longbelly methods, have a focus. My comment was only on how effective it was in accomplishing its stated goal, not a plug for the method as being better than others.
I'm not a 'purist' - I cast Skagit lines in the winter, scandi lines on switch rods on our small Pugetropolis summer rivers, and longbelly lines on 15'+ rods on larger desert rivers like the Snake and Thompson. Each IMO has a time and place.
Just my opinion -
