A superb handbook combining clear explanatory text with excellent sequence photography on single-handed spey casting


Expert spey caster Simon Gawesworth shares casts adapted from two-handed spey casting that enable you to fish the challenging spots most anglers skip. Whether you're a small-stream angler casting for tough trout or a saltwater fly fisher, Simon has refined spey casts for all one-handed rod needs: the single spey, double spey, snake roll, snap T, side cast, shepherd's crook, reach cast, and aerial mends. Learn ways to cast a fly to cope with obstructions wherever you find them and whatever water you fish, making it possible for you to fish the waters that frustrate other anglers.


Simon Gawesworth has fished in world championships and has taught spey casting throughout the world. His first book, Spey Casting (978-0-8117-0268-3), introduced many to the two handed rod. He writes for several fly fishing magazines.

'Despite the name Spey casting is by no means confined to wide open salmon rivers.  For the trout fisherman tackling a small river lined with trees, awkward banks and luxuriant vegitation, Spey casting can be the only way of putting a fly into many lies.  This book shows you how to do it... it does open up a range of skills to tackle the challenges of real-life fishing'.
