The use of video Analysis when learning to fly cast
I use an iPad with the applications Technique and Slow-Pro during many of my fly fishing lessons if requested by the student. Both applications allow me to take advantage of developments within coaching technology to make learning to fly cast much easier.
Technique is a specialist video analysis and sports coaching application that is used across a number of different sports. However, it is almost always used to help improve technique, regardless of the sport. Golf coaches use the application to analyse swing, while tennis coaches use the application to analyse how their students swing the racket.
I specifically use Technique for Spey casting instruction. I now feel that these applications allow me to coach to the best of my ability. The application allows me to video students, and then slow down the footage to as much as an eighth of the original speed, so I can show them where they need to improve their technique. Once I have established where the issue lies, I take the time to work on specific elements of hand movements or the Spey casting technique.
This application has been featured in Time Magazine and Golf Digest among other highly ranked publications. It’s essentially the best out there for all different sports, including fly fishing.
The use of Technique for Fly Casting
Technique allows me to slow any video that I capture of my students down to super slow motion. I can then analyse every movement made to the finest detail. The application makes video analysis much easier and allows me to identify the exact points that need working on.
If this is something you would like to use during instruction please let me know during your initial booking.
