im new to speycasting and today was the second time i ever casted a spey rod. i was having a problem bringing the line off the water when i fired the line back in the water. i noticed i was bringing my rod to 11 oclock to fast and then slowing down on the d loop so it was killing the cast also i wasnt keeping left hand anchored in my chest. i was watching the derek brown spey casting video hopefully i can pick up a few pointers. the first rod i casted was a little too fast for me so i switched to a heritage and i could cast a little better. ill try a cnd 14 ft 9/10 next saturday and see how it feels. the heritage in 8/9 was a lot easier for me to cast. ill just keeping practicing hopefully it will come.
