Spey Instruction in the Deep South?
Everything I've ever read on this (and other forums) says that a new spey caster (me) should get some professional instruction before picking up bad habits trying to teach himself.
Problem is, I live in Alabama, and my opportunities to travel to more traditional spey grounds (where I presume that talented casting instructors are plentiful) are limited. To my knowledge, there are no "spey claves" or "spey days" in Alabama. Anybody know a place in the deep south where I could get some decent instruction? If not, what is the second-best way to learn?
I have already purchased the "Spey to Z" DVD and I have been watching the instructional clips on this site and on YouTube. Any other ideas? Thanks in advance for your input.
