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 14 years of experience instructing two-handed casting, offers anglers the opportunity to consistently find the flow with his new instructional film series, Skagit Revolution.
Filmed by RA Beattie, viewers will note several stand-out feature in this series. First, Tom’s teaching style and methodology is focused around key concepts, that are reinforced in each casting lesson. For example, every time a cast is demonstrated he walks through the basics, leading up to the newest challenge. Every time, he will remind students to focus on stance and grip and work into the nuances of the cast from there. The repetition imprints rock-solid foundational habits. Furthermore, the lessons are filmed using different camera angles, a departure from the stationary views that have been used in past instructional materials. These diverse vantage points reveal the mechanics of every lesson. And slow motion segments give viewers a chance to study a perfect cast to the nanosecond.
