Default Re: Two-Hand/Spey Fly Rods For Bass?

Woohoo! I honestly want to thank you two for attacking my post. I jumped to conclusions that were unfounded and possibly condescending, and I apologize for doing so. EastTexas, you were absolutely right to seek out spey gear as a way to get both hands involved in applying power to the rod/cast. Using a two handed rod will allow you to apply power with the unaffected limb and also might be a Godsend when it comes to casting from the bank and avoiding the trees and such behind you.

I've never had to work around a pulled arm muscle, but I am learning how to work around carpal tunnel, or possibly just wrist-area tendonitis in my casting. Using both hands to cast makes more sense in many ways and I think this method will become more and more popular in coming years.

Learning to cast a two handed rod efficiently on stillwaters will be a bit of a challenge, but probably not much more so than getting the timing of a double haul just right.

Good luck to you, and feel free to consult sexyloops.com for further advice. Its content is much more tame than the title would suggest.
