Thanks Dana

I always had a bit trouble with my singles. I was trying to get on the 180 track by adjusting on my forward stroke. Watched this last week, hit the water this past weekend, worked the "pull" into my stroke, remembering the whole time "lift, pivot, pull, cast". POOOF, like magic, perfect single spey.

It appears you are starting the cast from upstream (lift) yet state from downstream.

I agree, I feel it is more difficult to get the line in the proper loop from the downstream position.
Please explain.

In the DVD I clarify what I'm up to here--basically we're imagining that upstream is downstream for the sake of the demo (the camera angles worked better during the shoot); additionally, part of the idea was to make the point that for practice purposes you can start your casts from anywhere. For example if you are on stillwater there is no upstream or downstream yet you can still practice all the casts.
