Default What else is needed.

Hi folks, I am in the process of considering a 12,6ft 6wt spey rod and need info on What else is needed. Backing- spey line I get its the changable tips and leader setups I do know how to setup. Im used to just putting on a tapered leader or length of mono right to my flyline using loop to loop. Suggestions on easy to learn spey lines greatly welcome. I am looking to throw rubber worms and like flys for bass and other large freshwater beasties.
Mike

You can do the research. I'll point you in a general direction.

Study up on Scandinavian style and Skagit style casting. Both use different lines, tips, and leader setups.

You will come across the terms "MOW tips," "T-14," "T-11," "T-8," "Versileader," "polyleader." Get familiar with them.

Go to the Rio Spey page. It has some general information of Spey style fishing.
