Book Description

Aug. 15 2010
"The magnificent photos in this book are easily enough justification for buying a copy, but coupled with Henrik's easy-to-understand teachings and his clear instructive style, this book becomes an absolute must-have." --Simon Gawesworth, from the foreword

* Spey casting with single-handed and double-handed rods, Scandinavian style
* Lessons from the world-famous guide and instructor for casting distance with ease

Henrik Mortensen's version of Scandinavian casting was designed to catch fish no matter where the caster is on the river--it is the most adaptable and flexible casting technique, giving the flyfisher the ability to ­handle any situation he encounters effortlessly.
Mortensen shares the essentials of fly casting with single- and double-handed rods in the Scandinavian tradition, beginning with the basic technique of the overhead cast. An explanation of the physics of the proper cast--and how the rod, line, leader, and fly work as a balanced unit--tell how Scandinavian casting makes it a pleasure to cast and fish. The author covers the tried-and-true knots that are best for this style of casting and how to add the single and double haul to your casts.

I bought this after watching some of Henriks incredible dvds. This book is the same quality and production as his dvds. Simply amazing. Great book, the illustrations really compliment the text. This is the easiest fly casting book to learn from that I have seen. The photography in this book is incredible. I would recommend to everyone. Great fly casting book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good book on fly casting Feb. 23 2012

This book is a very good book on the subject of fly casting. The author does a great job of tying together and explaining everything from principals to casts to tackle. The thing I like best about Henrick's approach is the fact that he's a fisherman first. That really comes across in his approach and the simplicity of his "system."

He goes in appropriate depth on physics and casting principals that maximize the potential of the rod, and that flows nicely into overhead and Scandi casting with both the single and double hand rod. Topping it off is a great review of tackle (lines, rods, leaders and flies) and how it all effects the performance of the rod, the casts and the success of your fishing.

Lastly, there's great photos and graphics throughout the book. If you want to take your casting and fishing to the next level, this book is for you.

Book ok but confusing. Not clear. Instruction sometimes good, often not. Content less than desireable--- too many numbers--not enough meat.
