Congrats on the new rig. I`ve been on the spey thing here in Wy for the last three years and I got to say its well worth getting into...The best advice I can give is to learn and pratice spey casting before you get on a pontoon or your favorite destination for that matter. At worse you or your raft could be wearing a hook if you dont cast right! Get a vid and practice a while and youll have no problem getting out +80' but you wont be do`in it overnite.
