New to Two-Handed Rods


I am a life long fly fisherman, but brand new to the world of Spey rods (2017). I am an engineer based in Chicago but I venture away from the city as often as possible in order to hit the water. I am very excited to dig into the world of Spey!

I lived in Chicago for 10 years. I just got into spey recently. My advice to you is to stop right now before you start. Because if you don't do that, you will not be able to stop, or focus on anything else ever again for the rest of your life.

PS - I just caught two steelies in the 10 lb/30" range on Wednesday and I am now very very angry that I came home and I am not still swingin'

Hey Johnny, glad to have you! Looking forward to your posts

Take care,

You make known to me the path of life;
in your presence there is fullness of joy;
at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
