Re: How does an Overhead Two Handed cast differ from a Spey or Switch cast?
First question back, do you have a spey rod? Have you used it much if you do?
First in your question there is a bit of terminology that needs cleared up. Switch casts are not casts done on a switch rod. There seems to be a lot of people that think so, but it's not. A switch cast is a spey cast without a direction change. Spey casts are sort of like roll casting but there is more energy imparted into the line with a spey cast. Far better way to cast. Spey lines are much heavier than single hand lines. I have never heard of a two hand Czech nymphing rod although there are some guys using switch rods (Short spey rods) to Czech nymph with. Personally I think it's kind of like buying a Maserati Bora to run the kid to school. They don't really cast that way. It's kind of just flick and high stick with a long rod and a really heavy nymph tight lined.
