    Default new subforum thought....

    I am wanting to learn more about fishing with the Spey Rod and was thinking where this is now more of an 'International Forum' with headquarters in the U.K. that our brothers and sisters across the pond would be a great place to gain information about Spey. Is there any possibility of getting a 'Spey Forum'?

    Not a bad idea. Only issue could be traffic since there are only a handful who I know use Spey and switch rods regularly in the forum.

    Hi Everyone,

    I agree that we should have a Spey forum. I will add one soon. Mosca is right that the traffic may be low. That is alright, it will grow.

    Once we get our login moved in with the other Fish&Fly sites, we will have access to many Spey fishers from Europe and Scandinavia. Of course we do have a bunch from the Northwest.

    Dan,
    Get ready for another addiction. Once you start fishing open water with a Spey rod, it's hard to go back to a single hander.

    Truth be told, I don't fire out the big distances as much with my two handers. I get stuck fishing lots of prime runs that I don't have any backcasting room.

    You are going to enjoy your future addiction.

    Glad I'm not the only looking in that direction. I've been thinking about wrapping my own, cannot be that much different than a single hand rod.

    I'm stoked about a spey room. I've started learning how to from my brother and it's pretty fun. Can't wait to learn more.

    Hi Pack,
    A lot of people think of Spey and switch rods as rods for big rivers. In your neck of the woods, some are going Spey and switch for Pyramid Lake. In the recent edition of Sierra Fisherman (page 26), there is an article on fishing switch rods on the Truckee. Fall of last year, I started using my 6 weight switch rod as my Truckee River rod.

    And of course if you decide to come into the Sacramento Valley, you gotta have a two hander in your Steelhead quiver.

    For those of you who said you are thinking of getting a spey rod....

    This is the first summer I have spey cast. I love it. I have hardly used a single hand rod since I started it. Getting a spey rod was the best idea I have had in a long time. I did it because I started catching big Walleye in the river, but the banks are close and steep. The river gets deep really fast so waders don't get you much more casting room. With a spey rod I can get 10' into the river, put a cast over 100' out and never have the fly pass back over the bank. (unless I blow my anchor) I can use a much longer leader which allows me to fish deeper more easily. If you have big water, this is really the way to go. You will not regret it. And you should see the fish I have been catching!
