AWESOME

Like his book, this must be THE definitive video work on the topic ever. Sounds like an exaggeration? Well, consider this - it's a three DVD set that leaves nothing out whatsoever and with Simon's eloquent and razor sharp attention to detail and his cast of supporting characters it's simply epic.

It's a Spey mini-series for goodness sakes! I haven't been flippin DVD so fast since "band of brothers". It's the dogs bollocks mate!

There's even a segment on a cast I stumbled upon as the upriver snake - except they called it some hot cross bun or jelly roll or something

Absolutely amazing work, a magnum opus from the Sultan of Spey himself. If you are interested in Spey, or two-handed fishing from the surf this is required viewing.

Now excuse me I need to move this screen out of the way to watch more...
