What Are The Advantages and
Applications for Spey
Spey Casting gives you more techniques to catch fish! Spey, or two- handed casting, originated in Scotland over 150 years ago, but has the following important applications for today's angler:
Easier - Requires less effort due to the 'fulcrum' created when
you use both hands. Spey Casting is actually easier for women, kids & those with shoulder or arm disabilities. The longer rods carry longer lengths of line so less stripping is needed.
Brush or bank behind you? No problem! Your casts 'anchor'
in the water beside or in front of you, reducing the normal back cast space needed.
Change direction with ease - no false cast necessary.
Achieve greater distance with less effort.
Two hand surf casting (overhead cast) to put the fly in front
of Striper, Sea trout, Redfish or even Pike on windy high
Cross over applications for single hand - Spey casts can be
used in single hand casting situations & give you more ability to present the fly in difficult situations. No better way to swing a fly for steelhead and salmon.
Spey cast for inland trout? Bass? Carp? Oh yeah baby!
Really looks cool & impresses your friends
Tape Your Spey Rod & You'll Cast It Longer!
Modern graphite spey rods require minimal maintenance. Prior to first
use be sure to apply a thin coat of beeswax or candle wax to the male ferrules of each rod section. This aids in providing a firm seating of the individual connections.
In addition, tape your sections using high quality electrical tape
before you begin casting. Apply two vertical strips of tape to each section then wrap over the vertical strips from 1½ inches above the joint to 1½ inches below the joint. Keep the tape pieces used for wrapping on the rod for
repetitive use. Taping your rod is the best insurance against tip loss and breakage caused by loose joints.
Salt water care:
If fishing in saltwater, be sure to rinse the rod and metal hardware thoroughly
with fresh water after each days use, and wipe clean with a soft towel.
*Snake River Outfitters has put together a truly handy little Spey Rod Care Kit - with everything you need - instructions, ferrule wax, ½" tape & two gripping cloths for 'sticky' situations.
