Default Re: Larger fish equipment question-Salmon -steelhead

I think that conversion kit to turn that rod into a Spey-er is designed to make it into a good overhead casting rod as well. If I'm remembering that correctly, that means an integrated shooting head line would work well with it. Those are also known as "Teeny Lines".

You'll have to get the timing of the casting stroke just right, but with that 2-hander, you'll have no trouble throwing a T-300 100'+. (that line can't be "spey" cast though, that's a whole different animal)

I'd rather hunt fish than bait deer any day.
