Thought I'd put up a quick list of videos for anyone who wants to look at some of the various casting methods out there. Please add any others you can think of.
Spey Masterclass with Derek Brown: covers Derek's approach to the switch cast, single and double Speys, spiral (snake) roll cast, and single-handed Spey casting. Good stuff.
International Spey Casting: Jim Vincent, Simon Gawesworth and Leif Stavmo demonstrate various methods including single and double Speys, snake roll, overhead cast, underhand cast and single-handed Speys. A very useful tape.
Spey Casting with Michael Evans: covers single and double speys. Short and to-the-point.
Falkus on Fly Casting: basic stuff--single and double speys off both shoulders etc. Interesting when compared with the techniques championed by Brown and Gawesworth.
Basic Spey and Two-Handed Fly Rod Casting with Jim Vincent: mostly an advertisement for RIO products, but does have some useful info on the basic Spey casts. Save yourself some time and get "International Spey Casting" instead.
The Art and Science of Spey Fishing with Mike Maxwell: details Mike's singular approach to the casts. A little dry at times, but of interest to anyone who wants to see one of the first anglers to spark interest in Spey casting in North America.

There's a new speycasting video on the market, this one by Mel Krieger. I've heard many good things about Mel's flycasting instruction style, so I'm guessing it might be worth a look.
Anybody watched it?

I think the Derek Brown tape is very good, but I've been unable to find a copy of the Falkus tape. Does anyone know where it's available?

I saw the Falkus video advertised in a recent issue of TROUT AND SALMON out of the UK. I'll look it up for you.

I've seen Mel's and your right he is a good teacher, communicates well. I'm not sure what he does is any different from the others. My choices would be the Vincent International and the Derrick Brown tapes. I also have one from Loop with more of an International flavor, a little on the order of the Vincent. I got it from Loop USA and the first shipment was in the European format but they do have a VHS version also.
