Here's an example of the classic Salmon River casting stroke:

Like Moose, I found the broad swing of a spey cast useful in acquiring room. Since I'm vertically challenged, I used the "mad Canuck" gambit to encourage cooperation. "I'm not real good at this spey business so you best stand clear or I might hook you by accident." says a wild-eyed me.

The Salmon River is an experience we should all enjoy . . . once. It puts all other fishing related problems into perspective.
