Re: Learning the Spey Cast?
Not to mention a guy in TX having a line for one.
Steely, there's a section of river real close to his house that is fed by a tailrace, full of big trout, quite wide, and has a very rugged bottom. That said, a 9/10/11wt spey rod is definitely overkill for most of those trout.
For the Lake Texoma tailrace (about 1.5 hrs from mike), a steelhead rod is a fine choice. Big Stripers in there and a 10 wt will throw the flies needed to attract them better than a 7 for sure.
Mike, how's that thing workin for ya, anyway?
