Spey casting videos with Roger H

Hello!

I have read here for a while and thought I start with some videos when I practice spey casting.
As you can see, it's competition casting that apply to me right now.

Spey casting 2014 part one. 18 ft

Spey casting 2014 part two. 18 ft slowmotion.

Do not forget to watch in HD!

Watching these videos makes me want to video myself casting, so I can see where I could use some improvement.

Thanks for sharing.

What make of rod and line are you casting Roger?

Thanks Kluev and Dan.

Clearly good if you can film when casting to analyze and see what to change in order to become a better caster. Slomotion is clearly to prefer.
You'll always find something to improve.

Cheers Roger.

Nice casting technique. I started practicing distance casing last year myself. What I found surprising in your videos is the you use quite light reels with your rods. Do you have your rods weighted in the butt? If so what weight do you use with your 15 footers? I don't know about B&W or MSX but my CND is quite hefty toward the tip.

Thanks Cloner, Janusz!
I'm still improving my technique and actually made some pretty big progress last fall.
Later on I will post movies on my spey practice casting 2015 here!
A lot of editing first!

None that I know of has weighted his rod for balance in competition casting.
But a stiffer/stronger/long rod with a light reel feels relatively heavy forward/upwards. Particularly 18' B & W rod.
Maybe I should test it on the 18´rod I currently building this winter.
Thanks for the tips!


Hope you improve your casting when you practicing technique.

When you take a look at factory built Gaelforce and CND rods they have steel rings mounted just over the ball at the bottom of the lower grip. These rings are available in 40g and 50g. Plus you can glue in some weight inside the butt section of the blank using resin. A good balance for a 15' competition rod is +/- 400g IMHO. Einarsson Invictus 12/14 or Hatch Finatic 12 Plus LA for an unweighted rod. I made some tests using different reels and the advantage of using heavier reel was reflected in the cast distance and my own comfort or a least I was able to achieve the same distance with far less effort.

Very nice job making high quality footage. Well done.

I understand that the balance is nice for fishing and allows us to hold rod from the warm cork but what positive there is in a heavier weight for casting? Perhaps there is something which I don' understand but have you thought what happens to the balance when you put your hand to the bottom handle? Then 50g weight ring is almost nothing? I think the hand weight and at least half of the forearm weight appears and ruins the balance. Then soon comes the force what bottom arm transfers to the rod!

I like to use as light reel as possible for SH and DH fishing rods. I have test cast a DH rod without a reel and it felt lighter and nicer to cast but I was doing normal fishing line testing. I bought used straight handle Zpey 15' comp. rod and its handle is very heavy and it feels really strange and after a brief session casting was not easy.
