Double Spey - X Axis?

This is a quick tip from Simon Gawesworth on setting-up during the double spey cast.

Does this sound familiar to anyone?

There are several different spey-casting aspects as they apply to the double-spey which are identifiable in this short clip, but he really is only focussing on laying the line down after the lift. Different instructor teach differently, especially when it comes to compacted-tapers (Skagit or Commando heads.) What Simon is saying really does apply across all line-styles and systems.

I think Tom Larimer talks about that frequently- the close, tight line drop. Or at least that's who I think I remember seeing it from.

Yes, I think what Tom Larimer says is in-line with Simon: Tight-close line drop when there is plenty of room and further out when you work your way close to obstruction. Simon doesn't refer to dropping the line as the anchor since it is only the repositioning move in a sequence and the cast isn't truly anchored until after the d-loop formation...

Wow. So many views but a single comment. I'm surprised, expected much more commentary!
Simon is excellent at instruction though. He knows his stuff and is good in clearing up misconceptions in spey casting.

Rio are site-sponsors and there are links to other casting-tips too. Check them out.
Cheers.

Simon is one of my favorite instructors. He makes it look so easy. Great casting tip. Thanks for posting. My youtube notifications don't always work.
