All good questions. The only one I felt I had a strong answer for was this one.

the answer, "a drawing board"

Waders, spey rod, spey reel, spey line, spey fly..
Why show someone something with some visual aid then make them convert that to a spey rod? Why not just go straight to the sourse??

After seeing Steve and Way's presentation several times, I would most definitely bring a single handed rod. It takes a lot of the "mystery" out of the basic spey moves.

video camera...

Two winters ago we spent soem time taping and watching each other cast. Then watching the pro's on videos that we had. Very insightful, to see what you actually do or look like.

8oz. Sinker

Seems as of late most students have trouble keeping the rod out to the side to load it. Have been using a 8 oz. sinker and swivel with a clip to attach their leaders to. Then do the Derek Brown on grass side to side D loop forming practice.

Spey question #3

Hi Dana
I don't know if you would call these props, certainly teaching tools,
I've had success by starting with:
Going over how to cast a single-hand rod, over-head (straight rod tip path, power application, stop pause etc.) I'll do this as a demo, 20 min's. and how important these are to all casting, then I work into a single hand roll, energized roll (switch), at some point, I'll peg a line on grass and explain (lift sweep, rise, forward stroke) "Thanks Derek Brown ! one of my hero's" then to water. As the lesson progresses, I'll get the group together and have each student show and explain the cast we are working on, to the group (this is so helpful and loads of fun). This I've found to be a great teaching tool, after each person explains the cast and demonstrates the cast ,you know they have it.
Have a game plan, but be prepared to change it.
