Disk 1: This tutorial will pull beginners from the sidelines directly into casting action. While Disk 1 is truly about the basics, intermediate and advanced casters will walk away with new perspective on the finer elements that enforce strong, consistent casting. Disk 2: In addition to learning Perry Pokes and poke variations from both riverbanks, anglers will refine their ability to adjust to subtleties such as shifting fishing conditions and tackle requirements.

Spey casting is an act of angling often mastered through solitary frustration. Many a soul has experienced the extreme up's and down's of the process, at moments feeling like an unstoppable pendulum of Zen . . . and then, the record scratches. A seemingly perfect cast falls to pieces in a hopeless, collapsing belly flop of broken dreams. Tom Larimer, a Spey casting instructor and fishing guide with 19 years of experience instructing two-handed casting and fishing, offers anglers the opportunity to consistently find the flow with his new instructional film series, Skagit Revolution.

Based on his own stumbling journey toward the perfect two-handed cast, Tom has developed a program that will transform anglers of all abilities. Skagit Revolution represents the first major Spey casting instructional video to release in several years and its vanguard technique is aptly compared to the transition from straight to parabolic skis, taking advantage of the laws of physics rather than fighting them. While it respects the tenets of traditional Spey casting, the approach addresses advancements in the latest technology.

Tom's casting education began 20 years ago in the Spey Dark Ages. Archaic books, cryptic tutorials and the occasional knowledgeable mentor served as his gurus on the ways and means to properly cast and present a fly using a two-handed cast. Although he was new to the sport, he was eager to share his hard-earned knowledge with clients. During these early years of his guiding career, he worked on some of the greatest steelhead, salmon and trout rivers in both the Great Lakes and Alaska. In 2001, Tom's passion for teaching Spey fishing led him to Oregon's Deschutes River. Since that time, he has quietly carved his niche as one of the top two-handed casting instructors in the country. Tom has also been a driving force in the world of two-handed product design. His casting and teaching style revolves around the family of Skagit-style lines that he developed for Airflo Fly Lines. Recently, he released a series of Microspey rods with the Winston Rod Company, which have been a game changer in the two-handed trout fishing theater. Skagit Revolution is the brainchild from these years of guiding, teaching and product design.

His tutorial, offered as a double-layered DVD (two DVDs in one), presents a rich and engaging ballast to fill knowledge gaps within the canon of Spey casting instruction. Both disks seek to break myths and reinforce good habits.
