Learning to cast

Hey guys. I just starting two handed casting this year and have some video from when I was fishing the Cowichan River on the Vancouver Island. My dad was able to take some video and any tips would be greatly appreciated! Almost all the videos are of the poke from different angles.
Thanks in advance!

My tip:
Learn the circle spey, and double spey, use your bottem hand more- You are on your way, just start refining your technique. Watch how smooth this guy casts... Nice little pop with the lower hand does the deal

Support Wounded Warrior Project, You will be so glad you do...

Take it to the water, and see if it works for you-

Support a local animal shelter, you'll be glad you did.

Not bad for a beginner! keep up the good work.
my tip, see if you can keep your top hand in a bit closer, and as above add power with the bottom hand. Keep your elbows in, rock with the rhythm of the cast, and groove on the birdies and trees.
enjoy!
