I am asking for one speycasting book for Christmas and I am interested in which book, if you had to choose, you would take above all others.

Thanks,
Zach

Book

There have been some other posts somewhat related to books on another thread. Other casting books (Author/ dealer prices) out there are Speycasting (Falkus /$250+), Speyfishing (Maxwell/$110), Fine and Far Off (Scott/$100- $150).

Not to diminish the previous authors, as I like all of the books and they have value for different reasons, but I agree with recommonding Simon's book in terms of content for casting (independent of price); there really is no contest. Additionally, as it was just published this year, it is easy to obtain at reasonable prices.

As a suggestion, put it on your list to Santa this year instead of waiting ten years and paying 10X the cost - it is much easier this way. Given the assumption that you will purchase Simon's book, and I think I would pick Fine and Far Off next.

Just a quick question in an out of the way location- are signature pics like mine kosher? I don't want to step on any toes.

Thanks,

my $.02 on best book

I am new to the Spey Rod as almost 1 year now. I found Simon's Book to be a great help to me. I have been through his Book twice very thouroughly. I am ready to take it around the track for the third time. I see and learn new things each time. I have no experience with any other books; however, this Book of Simon's must be if not at the top, very near to it...IMHO. Best, Stiver

I have collected all the spey casting books and videos available in NA.

IMHO the most instructive is Spey Casting by Simon Gawesworth.
