Yes, I found the biokinetic stick-man models a bit of a pain, but there is a lot in this DVD set.

overall, a comprehensive coverage of Spey casting
"Be you most gentle with your fishing, and even gentler with those you are fortunate enough to capture, as, for a fleeting moment, you will be handling the future parent of the fish that you would wish to cast a fly at tomorrow..."
I got this DVD set for Crimbo. There is a lot of info which I have found to be very interesting and helpful. Nice graduation through the casts from the single spey, to the double then on to the more modern casts. Excellent tips on common faults.
Only downsides are the biokinetics sections, which are an irritation and the frequent bursts of pipe music in deference to the origins of spey casting!
The Skagit casting looks impressive. Not really much call for it on the rivers I fish but on the bigger Scottish rivers it may be useful in the spring.
Well worth a view.
