WHAT THE EXPERTS ARE SAYING:
Simon Gawesworth . . . has studied the physics of spey casting with an eye to removing the voodoo that confuses students, and subjected his theory to practice in innumerable casting schools. . . . He has a capacity for encouragement, clear explanation, humorous and helpful analogies, homilies, and witticisms--all with the purpose of teaching and improving spey casting.
--Thomas McGuane
