Searching Vimeo, I came across this gem. Good stuff!
George Cook from the new series Spey TV goes over the 3 family members of the spey cast the Snap T and when to use them. The Snap T works of 3 spey casting strokes that all the spey casts use. Anchor Stroke, D Loop Stroke and the forward Stroke. More good stuff from George Cook on this one.
As Jon Hazlett explains in this spey casting video, the perry poke is a great technique for spey casting sink tips and heavy flies. You can perform a poke to set up many casts and I find it helpful to use when casting around stream-side obstacles such as bushes and trees. It’s all about positioning the line to make your presentation efficient as possible.
I have learned much from Jon’s great videos.
George Cook Launches Spey TV. The whole point is to talk tackle and show Spey Tackle. In this spey rod review, George talks about some of the most popular Sage Spey Rods in the 7wt range. 7wt Spey Rods are the goto all water rods. If you only had one spey rod, the 7wt is the one you want to go with. Which one is right for you? George lays out the difference between fast action spey rods and slower action spey rods.
Travis is a perennial presenter at Spey Nation. 2 years ago at the Spey O Rama in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Casting Club, dubbed the Spey Casting World Championships, Travis Launched a world record distance cast that hasn’t landed yet. So when Travis speaks about Spey Casting, you should listen. It should be noted that I have watched Travis try and mimic common spey casting mistakes and his muscle memory is so acute and perfect that his bad spey casts are better than my good casts. Take a look at this video if you want to know what spey casting is all about.
Travis Johnson began his fly fishing career at the ripe old age of 12. He was that kid who could not learn enough about anything and everything to do with fly fishing.
Travis landed his first Deschutes red-side at age 14 and his first summer steelhead at age 16. His passion for fishing with a fly has taken him all over the country and his wisdom of fishing the western United States surpasses most young men his age.
Having guided the Sandy, Clackamas and the Deschutes Rivers for over 6 years, Travis has learned how to find even the toughest of fish with success, while bringing an infectious energy to the game that will leave you invigorated and inspired.
From a day of chasing wily resident trout to learning in one of his advanced Spey casting classes, your day with this young man will not soon be forgotten.
If you have any questions on the availability of a trip or casting class with Travis Johnson, call The Fly Fishing Shop anytime between 6″00am & 6:00pm at 503-622-4607 or (800) 266-3971. Travis Johnson is both student and instructor in the art of fly casting. He is a member of the prestigious Carron competition Spey Casting team. Last year he placed second at the CLA World Championships held at Blenheim Palace. Winner of the event was Carron team member Gerard Downey, with a magnificent cast of 70.63 meters (231.7 feet). Gerard is now the current World Champion. The team is based out of Invergordon, Ross-shire, Scotland. It has dominated the Spey distance events for the past eleven years and has 12 world Championships to its credit. This team has won more events than all of the rest of the competing teams combined and Carron fly lines hold all of the Spey Casting distance records Most of the 6- members are Scottish. Gerard and Raurri are Irish, and of course Travis resides right here in Oregon, USA. As a matter of fact he grew up in Brightwood, just down the street from The Fly Fishing Shop, where he is currently employed in several capacities, including fishing guide and fly fishing instructor. He practices distance Spey Casting several times a week and regularly achieves casts of 150-200 feet with either hand. Travis won the 2014 Spey O Rama at San Francinsisco’s prestigous Golden Gate Casting Club with a world record breaking 198 foot cast!
