Anyone recommend a good casting video?

Anyone recommend a good Spey casting video? I've been single handing for 21 yrs, and only held a Spey once.

my two far-and-away favorites are

1) "Spey Master Class" by Derek Brown for a strong grounding in fundamentals.

2) "Rio's Modern Spey Casting" for the most thorough overview and clear explanations of different casts and styles.

-----------

a third favorite is "Art of Spey Casting" for some useful tidbits, but this isn't a good starter video.

If you are looking for traditional long belly line casting instruction and the best traditional casting technique DVD then Derek Brown's is my top choice.

If you are looking for short belly compact casting stroke technique for use with heads and lines like the Rio Windcutter or Skagit then the John and Amy Hazel casting DVD is the best option I have found.

Rio's Modern Speycasting and Miracle's The Art of Speycasting would be my choices. The Rio video details basic through advanced stuff, and the Miracle video gives you insights and demonstrations from most of the world's elite and influential Speycasters and Speycasting instructors.
