Skagit Casting is defined as water-loaded casts that incorporate a sustained anchor. These casts give a significant advantage where the angler is confined by the terrain along a river or where very large flies are used. This DVD gives step by step grass casting sequences demonstrating the various Skagit casts, Skagit Double, Perry Poke and C-Spey. There are real world applications of Skagit Casting in actual fishing situations. Ed Ward demonstrates tying an Intruder with Co-designer, Jerry French. There is a section that demonstrates Skagit Casting with Switch rods for trout and other species. Ed discloses his special line splicing techniques. There are special guest appearances by steelhead guides Scott Howell, Mike McCune, Scott O'Donnell and Jeff Hickman. Filmed on Sauk, Skagit, Grande Rhonde and Kanektok Rivers.
