Spey Casting- Shooting line management

as a sequel to this video and maybe a little easier to manage,  here’s another method of managing shooting line from Andrew Moy of Tight Lines Fly Fishing. the key point is as he points out, creating and keeping the loops in decreasing sizes, from big at first to smaller at the end of the retrieve. the same principle will apply when shooting loops in single-hand rod casting, the only difference being we’ll want to make smaller loops as they should be held (as much as reasonably possible… ) above the water, land or boat. keep in mind that on flowing water the coils are better off on the downstream side so, be sure to practise this with both hands to be able to cast comfortably, specially with double-hand rods.
