Default Re: Hardy and Winston Spey Rods?

Hi Scott,

I've had some shop people pretty concerned when I warned them that I wanted to test a rod this way. In each case the shop keepers were interested in what the tip to floor test would reveal as compared to the wiggling of fly rods. I was shown / taught that method as a quick reference for actions way back in the mid 70's by a very experienced tackle seller & fisherman. It's handy in a pinch,
