juro I hosted Simon Gawesworth on the beaches of Cape Cod so can attest that there is some coverage of beach casting on his epic video.

However my recommendation would be to spend time with someone who has done it a lot, or hire an instructor.

Overhead Beach Casting

Do any of these books/DVD's get into 2 hand beach casting? Thanks.

DaveSimpson I'll second speydoc on the idea of DVD. In this day and age, seeing - especially with slow motion technique - is much more powerful than words, as no imagination is required so very little can be misconstrued.

Although I've not seen many DVD's on casting, I do recall my nephew who recently took up fly fishing reported to me that Falkus on Fly Casting, by Hugh Falkus was of tremendous help.

Spey casting DVD

The dvd "Introduction to Speycasting" with John and Amy Hazel is excellent. Simon's book is very good.

Bob Pauli Simon Gawesworth's book is superb.

Simon's depth of knowledge plus a huge number of large sequential photos make this a winner.

chesterlh Don't forget Ally Gowan's DVD Spey Casting Made Easy. It too is very good. I agree with the Simon Gawesworth recommendation, great book. Use it in conjunction with the RIO DVD and it is a great learning aid.

speydoc Personaly books don't do it for me - DVDs are far more effective. RIO's Modern Spey Casting would get top slot in my opinion.

Salar-1 Charlie
Al Buhr's new book is
"Two Handed Fly Casting-Spey Casting Techniques"
I much prefer Two DVD's
"Spey to Z" (Excellent )
"The Art of Spey Casting"

Charlie Mike Maxwell’s book is good. It covers more than just casting. It also has a bunch of info on fishing with a spey rod.


What is the name of Al Buhr’s book? I did not know he had one out.

flytyer In addition, I would add Hugh Falkus's book on spey casting and Al Buhr's as well.

SALMONCHASER I'll get the ball rolling with Simon Gawesworth's SPEYCASTING. There are many more but you should not be without this one.
