new rod new style

Hi all,
I'm all brand new to the world of spey but the potential of this style of fishing has got me to try it. I have purchased a rod blank; MHX 13'6" 8wt; which I will build up, the questions I have for anyone willing to part with hard won info, is what I will be needing to line it with.
As I use to say to my apprentices" If you want to get the most out of this, Bite off more than you can chew then chew like hell!!" It seems like I have a gob full at the moment!
When I get the rod made I'll be in for more info.
Thanks,
Mark

I've never heard of the rod. Probably something around 550 skagit would be a good starting point but that's just a guess.

Ask the folk at mudhole - presumably they had someone design these and test them with a number of lines. Did you get a frogging gig ?

John and Amy Hazel's "Intro to Spey Casting", Henrik Mortensen's "The Perfect Cast" and "Scandinavian Spey Cast I and II". There are several other excellent DVDs but these are some of the ones that I've used.

I would contact Steve Godshall about getting a custom line.

The Rio 3 disc modern spey casting set is a very good starting point.
Have a look in the clasified section, dvd's often come up for sale or swap.
All the best.
