Was wondering if anyone in here uses the power of their Spey rods to cast tiny Dick Nite Spoons for Coho, Steelhead, or Chinook? I know people have been doing it for years on the single handers for cutthroat and coho off the beaches, some in the rivers....

You might be on to something! At Langara Island we have been trying to figure out how to catch chinook on the fly - but this is great ! I could use my 10160 to snake roll a jumbo cut plug herring out there - I'm SURE that I could get 'em!

I live in the country (east of Lake Tahoe) and have never heard of Dick Nite spoons. Where can you read about them, or get them?

Actually I've done it with some success in Washington Waters but never crossed my mind down here in the bottom end of Oregon. Worked well with the 9wt sage spey, but with the large siwash single hook keep your rod well off to the side. A miss cast and you've really drilled a hook into your waders .... or worse.
The wt. of the spoon is pretty much equal to a heavily wted. fly so it works well with a DT line. Not tried it with one of the more "modern" wt forward lines. Will give it a go again as it sounds like fun from the past.
