I just wanted to say thanks to all the posters, I've been lurking around and feeding on everybodys knowledge and finally bought my first spey rod (Scott G series 1510/4) and the Derek Brown video. I will keep you posted as I tangle my way to a river near you. I have yet to buy a line for this rod and was hoping someone could suggest a good floating line that would balance well with this rod. I think I should get the hang of it before moving on to sink tips and splicing and such.

now you need to bless and baptize that rod with a good beer!

intriguing - exactly how does this work?? I can see using the long rod as a swizzle stick with a mixed drink (that would be SOME drink), but what to do with the long rod and a beer?

It is old Indian trick, you can't explain, it must be demo'ed. You buy the ale, I'll show you.

Thanks, you buy the plane ticket and I'll buy the ale. just curious anybody have a line recomondation. I was thinking Rio Windcutter 9-10-11 unless someone has a better idea.
I know I'll have to move to quick sink tips at some point(east coast steelies love to hug the bottom) is there a quad tip or something someone might recomend.

If your rod is a 10 weight you should use the Windcutter 10-11-12. It will load much better for you. Have fun!
