Default Re: Why did you go two hand?

I got into spey casting because I wanted to fish all day and not get so tired. Also, I wanted to fish places where I had limited room to make a back cast.

They were good reasons. Here, however, are some things to consider:

1. There's a steep learning curve; and it's not easy deciding on what's the best line for you. (I tried a long belly, then the Windcutter before I settled on a Scandi. Recently, I've gone to the new Rage line.)

2. Unless you're casting a Skagit line - which means retrieving after each cast - you'll have a tough time casting bigger/heavier flies.

3. If you try to make a short cast, you'll have a very tough time.

4. The longer the spey rod, the harder it is to play and land a fish.

5. Be prepared to spend more money than you think you will.
