"John & Amy Hazel are not newcomers to the two-handed rod scene and have been featured in other Spey DVD's. Here they are on their home rivers in Oregon. The high banks of the Deschutes River give a good photographer's view for the techniques. The demonstrator narrates their own casts. We get a little insight into the dedication to effective fishing this husband & wife guide team offers their clients. More importantly a useful, succinct overview of the 'how to do it' of flycasting's unique water-anchored, big river Spey style casts. Elegantly presented with a few overlay lines for emphasis, this solid presentation in the great classroom of the Pacific Northwest can help unlock the two-handed flyrod mystery.- Gary Eaton, CCI"

"This instructional DVD, while good in content, is accoustically flawed -- so much so that I found listening to be an effort. The sound was saturated by background noise from the river, and the narrators were almost shouting -- I assume to overcome the interfering noise. Most cordless ("lapel") mics are highly omnidirectional, and it appears they were used for "Introduction to Spey Casting." But there are directional models with sensitivity adjustments, and these would have been a better choice. So would mics affixed closer to the narrators' mouths."
