Shutter speed was 1/2000 sec.

I plotted it on a 3 foot long sheet and have it on the wall next to my desk at work to give me incentive to practice, practice, practice!!!!!

I would argue that Spey casting is not Steve's best trait...


His great personality is! However, he's a world champion caster, so that should put his personality into perspective

Great picture, thanks for posting!

That's Steve Rajeff, Dr.Way Yin, and Bill Ward with him if not mistaken.

I believe that Last-Cast Steve's last name is spelled Choate.

And I wonder: does he kick his left leg back like that when casting from waist-deep in the Deschutes?

My aplogies if I mis-spelled Steves last name.

I won't happen again. My punishment will be practicing a off-shoulder double-spey in an upstream wind.
