Newbie Question

I was wondering: which/how many of the spey casting techniques assumes movement of the line downstream to setup the cast? Thanks Hunter

Hello Hunter, and welcome to the speyclave!

We most often assume that the line has swung round and stopped below the angler before each spey cast, however that doesn't need to be the case. You could for example use the spey casts on stillwater where there is no current.

Thanks Dana, I'm sure enjoying the site. I'm real new to this and the site is a wealth of information -- almost too much. My interest in mostly for two handers in salt. I do what to learn other Spey casts. Thanks again. Hunter
