Thanks for a terrific time on the water.
Your passion for two handed casting and teaching was quite evident and infectious.
I really liked the concept of coaching your fishing buddy.  You conveyed the ability to analyze and critique the cast very well. With your help, I felt like I progressed from uncertainty to some sort of proficiency over a short time.

Hi Walt,
Just a note to thank you for the great day spent learning the two handed  Spey Cast.  As you know I had never tried it and your clinic really got me started on the right track.  There is a lot to it, river right, river left, retracing your cast and what I liked the most watching the fly turn right before the forward cast.  You have a great approach for teaching the method and coaching through the steps.  The Deerfield River is an ideal classroom.  Really enjoyed the day.
Many thanks, John Tarrant, Cleverdale, NY
