Critique Please: Video for beginners

Hey guys, In my research I saw a need where I thought I could help. Hoping to give a quick and dirty expose' on fly casting using a Rio Single hand Spey line. This could also be helpful for new Spey casters because i did a forward cast segment that required two hands. Any suggestions would be welcomed if you feel something should be added or explained more clearly...Thanks in advance.

Good stuff here. The progression through the casting tips is nice. One aspect that I usually hit on right off the bat with new casters, after removing line slack, is the concept of lifting line prior to any other movement. This is every bit applicable to single hand overhead/roll/spey as it is in the 2hand world. If I can get a new caster to remove slack, lift line slowly and drive a back cast or Dloop then good things are happening.

Thanks for sharing

Hey thanks, I appreciate you taking the time to watch the video and critique. I kind of glazed over that but it makes perfect sense. Thank you
