HASH(0xa3311ea0) out of 5 stars Henrik holds nothing back, and delivers once again May 6 2011

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.

HASH(0xa3312108) out of 5 stars Very good book on fly casting Feb. 23 2012
By EWL - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
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.
HASH(0xa33120cc) out of 5 stars are really good and insightful Jan. 21 2016
By Torben Poder - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Overall, this book added a tremendous amount of valuable know-how to my fly-casting arsenal. The chapters on cast dynamics and composition of line, leader and fly, are really good and insightful. The so-called "Scandinavian Style" of casting, which this book is all about, is well done and clearly explained. After having exercised all the casting methods described, I certainly feel that I have moved forward in one particular branch of fly-casting, namely casting with short lines/heads.

My only gripe with this book, and it's a small and personal gripe at that, is that it tends to waver at the point of becoming a bit self-promotional and a little canonical. There are many, many ways to get a fly out to the fish, so it grinds me a little to be told that if I don't do things *just so*, then I'm doing it wrong! Especially since some chapters in the book discuss overall principles very well, but once it comes down to just which leg has to be in front, then there is only one way, to name one example. I cannot help getting a nagging suspicion that this book is also a bit of a manifesto, or a defense for naming a style that is supposedly very unique. Having read several spey-books and seen countless videos and casters, I have to say that besides minutia, the overall principles to take away from every source on casting a short line/head, is pretty much the same. Just a bit too much of this book revolves around why this is different and unique, and why the other ways are inferior, and I don't really see that, personally.

Still, if you are looking into casting shooting heads or short head lines, then this is most certainly the right book to get.

HASH(0xa3312420) out of 5 stars A great book to learn casting styles that make the most ... April 28 2016
By Jonathan C Harshey - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
A great book to learn casting styles that make the most of modern equipment. Thoroughly detailed descriptions, illustrations and photos. Everything you've learned about fly casting is still there, but you can take advantage of line and rod evolution to cast more efficiently in more places. This book's a great help.
