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

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

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.

Russ,

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

Charlie.

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

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.

Spey casting DVD

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

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.
