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.

Jacksonville opportunity

One good idea would be to contact John Bottko at the Salty Feather Fly Shop in Jacksonville, FL. His numbers are (904) 645-8998 or (888) 847-2589 and his web site is [ww.saltyfeather.com He is sponsoring a week-end Spey teaching session with Simon Gawesworth for July 18 -19, 2009.
