Any one of these will serve you well. I like the first one as well as any. The last one is the most comprehensive with some things you may not need just starting out. That being said it is very good.

How you get the line out and fishing is personal preference so as long as it works and is easy no one should care but the caster. MSB

Thank you

Thank you for the information. I'll go and pick up the recommended video so I can start my education. Not much spey info in Hawaii.

I second that emotion...

Order from Poppy, you'll be glad you did , You'll get way more help in the long run than just the dvd , plus no shipping cost if you spend over 25.00- Can't beat that!

Support Wounded Warrior Project, You will be so glad you do...

Take it to the water, and see if it works for you-

Support a local animal shelter, you'll be glad you did.

The Rio is more detail oriented I think, but that's just my opinion. Both videos are great resources.

Buy it from the the Shed!

Sounds good to me. When I decide on what DVDs i'm going to be i'll get it from the Poppy fella. Poppy must be a really good guy if everone speak so highly of him. Thanks for the hook up.

I vote for the Rio Modern Spey. It may seem overwhelming at first. Watch it over and over and over until you memorize all 3 dvds. I can tell you what Simon says before he does. Just a few minutes a day every day. Practice what you watch on the DVD so it all comes together in your muscles as well as your mind.

We all learn differently but this worked for me.

I second the vote for the Rio

Very detailed but a wealth of info. Great cinematography as well. Echo the recommendation to buy from Poppy.
