The Snap T

I've been slowly getting into various types of spey casts (hoping to get a spey rod soon!), and in watching some videos about casting, I saw some great videos of the snap T:

It's a quick cast that works great with a single handed rod. When I drift heavy nymph rigs now, I use this to cast up and across. I'm not great at it yet, but it's very elegant and works damn well.

It appears that some people, in the first step, go up and down rather quickly. In the video above, she swings the rod more to the side to lay the line upstream. Any thoughts about when to do either?

And here is Jeff Putnam makin' it look easy:

I was fishing the Yuba this afternoon thinking about how to answer this post. BTW... I caught three shakers.

I think that the two methods that you are describing really are similar strokes. I have noticed that some people like to get their rod tips high on the up stroke of the setup. My up stroke is swung fairly low like hers. That's how I was taught. I feel that some have their personal preferences on which is more comfortable.
