The Scandinavian Style - Spey Casting

Henrik will demonstrate the “The Scandinavian Style - Spey Casting” with both double hand rod and switch rods. The Scandinavian Style Spey casting is a fly casting style which integrates both fishing and casting, and it is a concept which is convincing in many ways and makes it so much easier to become a great fly fisher. For him, there isn’t one without the other. His motto has always been "the perfect cast is the one that hooks a fish” and therefore it is so important that the cast is adapted to presenting the fly under any conditions.
