Hum, perhaps viewing a right handed SS video with the aid of a mirror. I’m not joking! Sounds funny but should work perfectly. That way you can use the best examples you can find, regardless of their handedness. I get that for a lot of people this feels like a big step, but I honestly dont really understand why it is hard to absorb the basic details from a right hand cast. Still, the mirror will actually work perfectly if you don’t find more left-hand videos.
If you already can do a right handed SS you can also try alternating back forth doing SS left and right handed. You may need to look for a good location to try this, such as a lake, but it is a good way to quickly map the motions from right to left hand side. You have to pay close attention, but your inherent sense of symmetry should help you make it work.
Spey casting is rather hard to film really well, being a combination of close in and far out details, and it isn’t done that well a lot of times. So I agree with you it can sometimes be difficult, whatever the hand, to find good videos that help.
