    Default We Are Expanding Our 2 Hand / Spey Forums;

    If you were to visit the 'Forums' page and scroll down you will find a number of new sub forums being added for discussion of fishing with 2 hand fly rods. I am not an expert caster but do have some personal experiences which I will gladly throw into the mix when they seem appropriate.

    Whether you are new to the long rods or a long time user, your input will be helpful.

    That's great Ard! I gave the sub forum a quick look and really like how the topics are broken out. Hopefully this will make some of the topics of conversation easier to navigate for the membership.

    That's the idea Jason and there will be some more changes over the next few days. I would like to take it the way of social groups but with more features and open access of course.

    I would love to see some of your Intruders & tubes start showing up in the Fly Tying sub forum I may even be moved to do a step by step of the Sculpin patterns to get things off the ground.

    Anywhere can be the land of great expectations, broken dreams, or paradise found, it's all up to you.

    I like the idea and will look for the coming changes, they sound interesting! I'll have to post up some of the photos I have taken. I've been meaning to do a SBS for a tube fly, as well. Now if I can find time to sit down and tie some flies I'll be in good shape.

    Don't let Fred spook you off, we can get you fishing a decent rig under 375.00. That's rod - line - and reel, if you're patient

    Would this be for switch rodders as well? I know very little about spey and switch but I have an 11' blank hidden in some dark corner of my mess. I intend to build it buy spring.

    sent from my tablet...so please excuse the typos, spell check is an amazing thing!

    Well I wouldn't go for the $375.00 save for 'used' equipment. Which 98% of the time is just fine for what we're up to ... fishing, not casting for Glory.

    But top end of the 'line' stuff Ard would/might have to agree with my numbers?

    What a grand idea, I noticed the forum is starting to have more topics about the spey/switch. I am going to be a regular there for sure.
    I am highly qualified to comment in this forum after receiving a Specialized High Intensive Training (S.H.I.T) at the Olde Schitt Institute of Technology (O.S.H.I.T).
