Why Spey Casting
Casting Areas: No overhead back casting necessary. Longer distances are achieved with the Forward Spey Cast by creating a down wind "D Loop" over either shoulder.
Changing Directions: 90 Degrees of change is accomplished in 1/3 the time or less then traditional single handed overhead casting.
Line Control: The longer, two-handed, 12' to 16' Spey Rods allow for properly presented flies at greater distances in most all conditions.
Near Effortless: No overhead casting strokes required. All casts are accomplished with considerably less arm motion compared to the single hand casts. By allowing your body to create most of the power, called body casting, the spey rod will finish the casts with much less arm effort.
Feel The Pull: Feeling the pull or grab of a fish while tight lining a long lined swinging fly is exhilarating. The excitement of the hook set, doing battle right through the release, is a feeling second to none.
Relaxing & Enjoyable: Longer Casts, Covering More Water with Properly Presented Flies allows you to dissolve into a calm state of mind and enjoy a peaceful encounter with the outdoors while spey fishing, as fly fishing is meant to be.
To Swing & Track Flies Effectively, you must understand the spey fly, it's profile and the proper speed required for optimal presentations. Critical fly tracking techniques, as well as a properly tied fly to a leader are major elements required to achieve maximum effectiveness and success.
