I live 5-minutes from a perfect spey casting area. River left with a lagoon on the back side. Approximately 300 degrees casting radius. Shallow wade for 10' out so I can have great anchor water for all casts. My Daily Routine is: Switch cast both right and left hands with 70- 80' of line; dead line roll cast R/L hands to work on the stop and involving BOTH hands; double spey around the horn left hand and back around the horn right hand; left hand snake roll around the horn and back with right hand. circle cast and snap-T around the horn and back; Perry Poke with both right and left hands; then work on distance and shooting line with both hands. Cool down with short casts and good tight loops. Each practice session I work on one objective with all cast, i.e., anchor, pick-up move or etc.. I also single-hand cast with both hands all spey casts and overhead. What I have found is my non-dominate hand (left) is getting stronger and more comfortable with each passing month. My basic Philosophy is: practice with concentration so I can fish with confidence and comfort.
