All this talk about Skagit casting in the ditch has me thinking we need to get these guys to come to the canal and give a seminar to the ditch rats... including the Jedi master himself (Ed Ward), the man of the Cascade Mountains (Mike Kinney) or one of it's lead disciples Scott O'Donnell whose accent ditch rats will understand as he originally hails from Taunton MA of all places.
In the mean time the best advice is to get ahold of the new Rio Spey video as it's got a segment dedicated to Skagit casting. In addition there is a section dedicated to 'Spey in the surf' which we (forum gang) had a hand in making happen for Simon. The most pertinent Spey video for the canal ever!
