the book, and a couple of DVDs. I have an interest in this style of casting, and have found this to be an informative source.
IMO the style focuses more on fishing than casting, and Henrik emphasizes a good cast for fishing purposes rather than distance. His style is extremely relaxed, and flexible. I tend to agree with his philosophy, but am a guy that always wants to cast to the other bank, so I am not sure this style will keep me content. I have found that I like casting almost as much as catching.
The book is filled with technical data, and application. The DVDs help to illustrate the cast, but the two that I have focus on catching salmon with a lot of helpful information, and IMO could have more casting technique presented. Both the use of SH and switch rods is presented with an emphasis on dry fly fishing.
I learned a lot of fishing techniques from watching the DVDs, but to be practical, I seldom encounter an Atlantic salmon pool where I could use many of these techniques. I am not of the elite that can rent a pool for the day, and start at the bottom, and work to the top of the pool, if necessary.
In one of the DVDs Henrik demonstrates fly selection choices for Canadian Atlantic salmon rivers on the Gaspe, to include tube flies, and mentioned aluminum and tungsten. I know of no Canadian rivers where weighted flies can be used for Atlantic salmon, which is common with tube flies. And rightly so IMO. This is not to say that tube flies have to be weighted.
The "popsicle" style flies that have been effective in my personal experience are denounced by him, but I suspect that much of this is based on his "across the pond" experience. But, he does offer a reasonable explanation to his opinion. I respect that.
Nevertherless, I have a great interest in his casting, and fishing style,and philosophy. It seems practical, effective, and geared to Atlantic salmon fishing.
I second the originator's opinion of this resource. One can never learn too much.
You can catch a lot of fish, and you can keep a lot of fish. But you can't do both very long. Jim Timmins
