Thank you everyone for the welcome. Unfortunately, I am still waiting on a reel and line for my two hander. I'm holding out for an appropriately sized speyco to show up here. I could get a lesser reel to get started, but I just can't get those beauties out of my head.
Randyflycaster, I think spey casting isn't bigger here is because everyone in town seems to have at least two boats. However, for the boatless such as myself, I agree the water looks to be prime spey water.
Steelhead23, the intracacies between a spey fly and a classic salmon fly are only known to a select few who happen to reside on boards such as these. Said people generally only reveal what does NOT define either, rather than explaining what DOES qualify. Both are gorgeous works of art that I aspire to tie. The whiskey in my flask is bourbon. I assume, because you are asking, the brewery and the river are not in close proximity. Wait...did I stumble into the Drake forum? Kidding aside...I'm still chomping at the bit to cast this Scott. I'll let you know how it goes.
Time2shine, I too am surprised at the lack of spey resources in the town shops. They all seem to offer clinics occasionally but that is it.
