Help with Delta Spey please
Bought a Delta Spey 7/8 for a B2X recently with the hope that I would be better able to mend line than I am with a Skagit, or Scandi line, and just gave it a try last week. Total disaster! I am clearly not rigging it properly.
First, I believe that using it with a sink tip is clearly not a good idea. Not enough mass in the line to get the tip on the surface, and the fly was not big and heavy. I had a Light MOW tip, with 2.5ft of T-8 and about 4 feet of 15lb tippet. I assume that the Delta Spey should be used with floating tips, is that correct?
Second, I assume that the Delta Spey is more of a Touch and Go line, but not being able to get the fly up made it impossible to try. Is that correct?
Hope to give it another try this week, but any tips may shorten the learning curve a bit, and are much appreciated.
I can't understand why some folks think a drink can is harder to carry out when it is empty than it was to carry in when it was full.
