Call from Mr Brian Jones to see if I could help him out to learn spey casting, the one problem Brian had worries about his shoulder being able to cope with the casting, as I told him its the rod that does the work and not you, so I ran him through the basics os safety, set up, grip, stance and the three main principles of the cast, D loop/ D loop size, line stick or line anchor point and the 180 degree principle, couple of demo casts of a basic roll cast and away went Brian, a bit too much effort to start with, then calmed down and thought of minimum power and being smooth, it soon started to come together, after he was happy with the way that was going we moved on to a jump roll, slightly harder for Brian as you can’t stop mid cast like on a basic roll cast and look if you’re doing it right, but in a very short period of time it was starting to come together and a nice rhythm was falling in to place, but Brian shoulder was starting to play up so we thought we would call it a day, get some practise in and come back and take it a step further.
