Eric, I enjoyed reading it again, as much as I did when you first posted it on your blog!

I started out with long lines (70-80 ft. heads) on shorter (13ft.-6 in.) rods, and I guess, was lucky enough to find a magic combo of rod, line, and casting style that never tired me out, never gave me trouble in the wind, nor limited the space behind me. All the benefits of why Spey-casting was developed!!

I totally agree on the "take it out of the closet" and try again aspect! I recently posted a fly that touches on the very same concept.

Thanks for the post Mr. Helm,
