Default Spey

Anybody that doesn't already spey fish- should. It's really that simple.

I haven't gone over to the dark side yet! LOL!

Seriously though I have been considering trying it out, I have watched a number of YouTube videos of guys Spey casting, but being left handed I just seem more confused than before I started. Front Range Anglers did a demo over on the Miracle Mile in WY last fall, I probably should have made the effort to drive over and watch first hand.

The big thing for me is that casting is really fun IMO with the spey rod, its easy when you get the hang of it, and you can cast all day without being sore, I find it more enjoyable in general and have been thinking of places to use the spey rod for the upcoming season.

Infection - fever - there is only one answer.
