welcome!

I've asked Sean to set up this board (thanks Sean! ) so that those of us interested in the technical aspects of spey casting and spey casting instruction can have a forum to share insights and ideas. I've moved some of the threads from the other boards over here to get us started.

Have fun!

$ 1000.00

Dana,

I've got a grand to get a spey set up in a 8/9 going this fall. I truely believe in quality .. so what you pay in $$ and how it performs on the water are directly related. I fish the great lakes rivers and tribs, salmon, browns and steelies are part of plan. Had a chance for a 8/9 Gloomis Roaring River GLX Stinger 13'-8/9 but slept to long on it... If you could, throw me out a good set up technically for a 1000 +/-

Thx

Looking For Spey Instuctor In Michigans's U.P

Hello,
I'm up in the U.P of Michigan, right in the middle around Trenary.
Looking for someone to show basic Spey technics and am willing to travel to his/her location. I'd like to line up an instructor for the near future as the purchase of a Spey rod and a quality reel is something to save for....but not for long.
I've had no luck locally, the one that I did find did not reply to my e-mails.
So if you know of anybody.....

Thanks,

Sam

Thumbs up Thank"s Neil & New Fly

Thanks for the replies !
I actually did spy that on searches earlier and may just have to check it out.
In the long run I'm looking for someone in the U.P. for instruction, I'll travel
up to 100 miles from Marquette or Escanaba which covers quite a bit of the U.P.

Thanks again guys,

Sam

Short of swimming after it, is there any way we can cast and swing our fly with reasonable confidence that it is doing what we hoped?

Answer fly control is pretty easy.

Slightly different with a full floating line vs. a sink tip of some sort.

Dry line: Cast across and slightly down stream and one or two up stream mends (best if the first done as an 'air mend'). Object is to get the line above the leader and fly. Whole idea is to get the line up stream from the leader. Current will normally pull the fly ahead of the leader.

Doing an 'air mend' takes a bit of practice, but not much. If the the line lands on the water, still the one/two mends BUT with your rod tip as high as you can get it as you want to 'lift' the line as you move it up stream. A 'drag' is a no-no. Think of an upside soup bowl.

Sink tip:

Same idea as above but aim your cast further down stream (I usually go for about 15%, your mileage may vary. A single up upstream mend is usually enough to bring the line under tension. Job done.

But like all 'Rules' sometimes you have to break them. Example you have a 'wide' section of far slower water you have to cast over to get to the 'Holding water.' There your mends will be DOWN STREAM. Follow the fly with your rod tip and flick the line in the slower water to keep things lined up. If you don't your line will end up in a "L" shape and no way can you set the hook.
Hope all that makes a bit of sense.
Fred

Minor edit: Do you hold back with your rod tip or rod tip slightly ahead of your line? Usually the first will slow up your swing, leading will speed it up.
