Beginner needs help.
I am just getting started in spey casting. I want to build a spey rod, but I am not sure what the best action for distance is. I want to use clousers and need to know what length/action/weight would be best for this. I also need to know what lines would be best for casting heavy flies. I live on the Rainy River on the Minnesota Canada border. I started catching big walleye from shore with a 9' 5wt. and clouser minnows. I have not found any other flies that work better so far. The banks of the Rainy are high and the river is very wide. I think spey casting is the answer to getting farther out into the river short of getting the boat out. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
