Advanced Skagit Casting for beginners?

Happy new years. Here is some Skagit Casting / Spey casting techniques I've been playing with.

Another brilliant little pearl of wisdom. So easy to watch and understand.i have to say SkagitMeister you do have a talent for teaching. Keep them coming. I don't know if I have missed it or you haven't covered it yet but a lot of beginners struggle with the roll cast in all it's guises.Perhaps in one of your clips you could have a look at that. If you have covered it tell me to keep my mouth shut. Well done. Who the hell are you?

Thank you Sir, I appreciate that a LOT! When I first studied the introduction cast I cringed...seems I abandoned my bottom hand when I changed casting styles. I fear that will not go unnoticed by my underhand and scandi friends! I need work on that.

Yes, A roll casting video sounds like a great Idea. Thanks for the suggestion. That's an excellent idea because it morphs out of and into other interesting topics!

SkagitMeister, have no worries ,what your journey has done is highlight the issues,problems each style of cast brings with it. Unfortunately there has been so much nonsense written on the subject, usually by people trying to reinvent the wheel for their own ends. They are also the very first to criticise. Honestly very little has changed since the days of Grant and Edwards. Casting a double handed rod requires two hands to perform,that's why it is called a double handed rod,long line long stroke, short line short stroke easy to remember. If anyone doubts me watch that wonderful caster Scott Mackenzie in action. Keep them coming, no change please.

Thank you again. My hope is to keep it simple.

Sometimes I catch myself asking if I'm parroting info that is the status quo, or sharing what I know to be true from experience. I have to change my presentation sometimes to keep it real.

I'm a fan of Scott Mackenzie, I've watched his masterclass time and again. I hear he is a beast, some still say he's the best with a long line and I can't say I could disagree.
