theres some cool stuff in there
a few of those casts arent that hard and are actually somewhat useful.
especially the ones with a "half-backcast" where he uses the surface tension to load the rod. I find myself doing that more than roll casting cause its a lot easier to get distance.
would have been rad to see some more spey stuff.
I forget what the cast is called, but another fun\easy\impressive cast is where you let the flyline go taught in the downstream current, pick it up parallel to the current, do a little "C" shaped "backcast", and then throw the line forward perpendicular to the current. Also very handy in tight spots.

Good to see spey casting crossing over to the single handed rods. About the only time you're going to get away with flogging the water like that is when salmon fishing though. Notice how you hold the extra line with a double hander. Try not to rip the tip of your finger off:eek:

So if you like that, you can recieve good instructions and videos at:
Most of what he was doing was switch casts and spiral casts. None of these are hard to learn, and are infinately useful on the water.
As for not being useful for trout fishing, that is not the case. With a change of direction Snap-T or double spey, one can setup your cast away from the fish and still make a nice presentation with limited back cast room. Granted this won't work on little criks', but on medium sized rivers it's money
That's cool and all but....did he catch any fish?
