the principles are all the same, just with smaller movements with smaller rods, even with single hand rods the practices stay the same.
If you watch any of the excellent skagit master dvds you would be gettin the right advice, i dig switch rods to! I must say im dead keen to try a Winston 11'6 6wt spey to, short spey rod as opposed to being a switch but would be a Sweet rod to use i think.

They must find it difficult... those that have taken authority as the truth and not truth as the authority.

Jeff Punams switch casting techniques videos are excellent. And a good buy at kienes spey shop, scroll down the page here

I second Putnam's stuff. He is a very good instructor. He came to Boise for a couple claves and did some one on ones with me and I thought his technique for teaching was very easy to understand and work with. I think most of the sponsers have them, but I know The Red Shed does.
