Simon G. demonstrated a 60 degree UPSTREAM single spey on the video. I was on the river sunday, and the rod was basically casting itself, so I figured I'd give it a try. Granted it was with a Windcutter with a sinktip and a short leader, but dang! It worked like a charm!

Can't wait to try it with a longer belly line, but for getting a serious sink and working the close in deep slot I was fishing there could not have been a better cast.

Cool :smokin:

Loved that cast too, and also realized--after watching Simon's demonstration--why the flat backcast is less and less workable the more you change direction on the single spey. Might have taken me 20 years to figure that out otherwise.
