difficulty for the angler is merely that the reason is hidden some way beneath the surface.
--G. E. M. Skues

During the considerable periods of time trout spend feeding exclusively on underwater food forms, nymph fishing can be the most productive, if not the only way to catch fish. But understanding what occurs below the water's surface can be a challenge for even the most experienced angler. In Nymph-Fishing Rivers and Streams, aquatic entomologist and long-time fly fisherman Rick Hafele shares the information necessary to successfully decipher the mysteries of trout life. He starts by explaining their feeding patterns--where trout feed, when they feed, and what's available for them to eat. Sections on tackle and pattern selection help anglers sort through equipment and imitations to find the best outfit for their needs. The DVD complements the photos in the book that show various methods for nymph fishing. Also included is an angler's field guide to nymphs with details on their habitat, importance to trout, and the most effective patterns and fishing tactics to imitate them.

These Spey Casting Tutorial DVDs Make Great Gifts
Offered here are the two greatest Spey Casting  instructional DVDs ever produced. You can take your pick.  We suggest you pick both.  Watching both is like attending both Harvard and Yale. We picked these two as equals in presentation and technical know-how. Both presentations are pleasant and easy to watch.  They both navigate easily from one subject to the next.  The 3-DVD set from Rio has longer plying time, and has the charm of Simon Gawesworth and his strong supporting cast of experts.  Spey to Z has the leadership of Dr. Way Yin and the most perfect film resolution possible. We have met every one of the of the teachers and both film crews that produced these fine pieces of work.  To some degree we watched both films being shot.  They were both filmed on waters we call home.
Spey to Z
Finally a DVD that connects a standard overhead cast with Spey, Scandinavian, and Skagit styles of casting.  A great DVD for anyone who wants to learn about casting two hand rods.  The instructors are Greg Person, Topher Brown, and Way Yin.  The video and sound quality are the best available on the subject of casting with a two-hand rod.  This is a great all round video for casters of any skill level.  One hour plus.
Sample Video Clips:  Scandinavian Shooting Heads     Perry Poke
Here is what Dr. Way Yin says about this video DVD on: Spey Pages:

"Topher Browne, Greg Pearson, and I are pleased to introduce a new instructional casting DVD: “Spey to Z: Understanding Traditional, Scandinavian & Skagit Style Spey Casting with a Single and Double-Handed Rod.”

Topher conceived and organized the project nearly two years ago as a unified presentation of all the major Spey casting styles. The DVD itself has been in the works for more than 18 months, and we spent nearly a year working out the script and teaching points in order to take maximum advantage of the unique capabilities of the DVD format.

From a teaching standpoint we wanted to convey that all fly casting, including Spey casting, is governed by the same fundamental principles. Differences between the three primary styles of Spey casting (Traditional, Scandinavian, and Skagit) simply reflect the adaptation of mechanics to suit specific equipment, which, in turn, reflect specific fishing applications. Because Topher, Greg, and I really enjoy fishing with single-handed rods, we placed single-handed Spey casting up front and center; our goal is to make the transition from a single-handed rod to a double-handed rod as easy as possible.

“Spey to Z” combines much of what we have learned over the years casting, fishing, teaching and demonstrating. We put our own individual spin on what we have learned from all the folks in the U.S. and from abroad that have taught us and inspired us. We hope that an understanding of these principles and how they relate to all fly casts can help anyone improve their casting by recognizing faults and implementing cures based on a solid grounding in fundamental mechanics.

The DVD was entirely filmed on the Deschutes River in November of 2005, and is sponsored by 3M/Scientific Anglers, Scott Fly Rods, Simms Fishing Products, Maui Jim, and Filson. Jeff Pill (the Art of Spey Casting, Joan Wulff’s Dynamics of Fly Casting) directed the DVD, and Dave Drum was the Director of Photography. Sean Glenn (History Channel, Discovery Channel) and Eddie Howells provided additional camera work. Tom Eichler (History Channel, Discovery Channel) provided the sound, and Steve Lovejoy (Art of Spey Casting, numerous TV shows) edited the DVD. Richard Allen from Track Design provided the DVD authoring.

Proceeds from the sale of the DVD will be donated to various charitable and conservation groups, including the BC Steelhead Society, the Atlantic Salmon Federation, Trout Unlimited, the Native Fish Society, and FFF Youth Casting Programs.
