Scandinavian Psych Poke

This is what happens you get all set up to do a Perry Poke but do a single spey instead. Just in case you're bored. This place is a ghost town.

High water and very fast current! Here that usually require some sort of very fast sinking "grain" shooting head or a very heavy T-shooting head. First Spiral Spey to lift line head and then Single Spey is the pro way When casting heavy sinkers it is also common to do sort of Single first where line is turned as much as possible and then immediately a Single which turns the rest or just a Switch Cast if the "line lift single" did turn enough. We call did call it Spray casting but back then didn't know there was Skagit lines and casting coming

I forgot to say that the river is blown out and there are only eleven winter Steelhead that have made it past the spot I am casting. So I'm just using a floater without a fly in case I hook a fast moving log and be swept downstream. But I like your comment Esa and I'm gonna take your advice! Good comment buddy. I agree, the switch after the single is a powerful casts and works pretty darn good with Skagit stuff too!

At first I thought it was you Tim, then I thought that he was someone "scandi" so I quickly did change the post to what it game. I still can not recognize any hesitation where you suppose to Poke it but of course I know when you would have. The Single there is excellent, very Scandi and the best new one I have seen since Janusz videos and already bit better when you turn casting direction very clear there!.

It has all the good elements, high rod angle back cast and perfect timing between body turn and bottom hand push which all ends to a drift. Forward cast rod is upright, balanced use of both arms and no high stop because it is unnecessary as the line loop is already on its way and that is what makes the cast even more modern Scandi. It lacks only body rocking but everyone understands now there can not be more rock than the small one you stand

I would like to use this video in Striper forum when I write about shooting head Spey?

Thanks Esa. I noticed in my videos when I do my perry poke set up that I use all bottom hand to set my anchor so I set up to do a perry poke and when I set my anchor I drifted and fired. I'm glad you like the clip and by all means feel free to use it as its listed publicly on youtube. Thanks man. Glad you like it!
