From the Skagit to the Deschutes and beyond, Dec Hogan is known throughout the West as a premier steelhead guide and Spey-casting guru. His casting techniques are a combination of old and new styles adapted to maximize the performance of todayís modern Spey rods and progressive tapered lines.
In the casting clinic, a step-by-step breakdown of Decís technique takes the viewer through the arsenal of casts Dec uses while fishing the various conditions he encounters during a dayís fishing. Dec then takes us out on the water to show the practical application of the casts presented in the clinic and much more. Flies, presentation and Dec Hoganís fishing philosophies are just part of whatís inside. With the help of fellow guide Adam Tavender, proper resuscitation and release of your catch is covered as well.
Filmed in Coastal British Columbia, Dec hooks up with many chrome-bright steelhead . . . and even lands a few.
