Things I'm learning about Scandi casting

I've spent the summer trying to learn Scandinavian Spey casting and it has been very interesting. Special thanks to Cloner who has gone way above and beyond the call of duty to help me out as well as several of you all who have been very helpful.

Anyway, I have a long, long way to go but here are a few of the things I've learned if there is anybody out there learning along with me.

I've never told you to make slow sweep Lift slow, yes, but then push your bottom hand away to generate some line speed into the sweep. The longer the shooting head the more speed you need to generate into the sweep. The higher you lift and the higher you keep your rod tip the slower you sweep

No, but you did advise me to concentrate more on a light, leader only anchor as opposed to a super flat V loop.
It was just my personal observation ( I should have made that more clear) that sweeping with the bottom hand does not really have to be quick and abrupt to be effective. But what do you expect from a guy who videos half of his head?

When I dont rush it, it takes some time. But I guess It would have been a good idea have say it that way to begin with. Thanks for weighing in.

I told you to lift high if you need to and make decent drift. Also you should lift to the side to move your anchor away from you (sideways). I suggest you record yourself casting with the camera placed behind you so we can see your hands position during lift, drift and forward cast - this should clarify things.

Sorry you cant get on, not sure what the problem is...usually when that happens it is because I post the wrong link. This time it is working for everyone else that I know of. Try this one.
