Henrik Mortensen DVD-Underhand Casting
Many avid Spey Clavers are familiar with Henrik Mortensen through Dana Sturn's extensive Spey Pages interview with Henrik on the Underhand technique. Dana also included a short video clip of Henrik making the Underhand cast look pretty easy.
Henrik Mortensen has recently released a DVD entitled "The Perfect Cast." The DVD clearly explains and demonstrates the techniques of the Underhand cast for both two-handed rods and single-handed rods; it also illustrates some of the many advantages of the technique through several live-action fishing sequences. Filmed entirely on several Atlantic salmon rivers in Iceland, these sequences--especially some of the aggressive takes on a hitched fly--are some of the best ever captured on film.
Whether you are an aspiring Underhand caster or not, you will find "The Perfect Cast" to be highly informative and very entertaining. As Simon Gawesworth says of the Underhand cast in his recently released book, "if you are a true Spey disciple, you need to know it."
