Bob Rodgers Welcome!
Moved out here from Mountain Home. Used to get some funny looks from folks fishing the White while I practiced with a two hander.

Best wishes,

ptmstrbbq Welcome NWAdrew. You're in a great area, love The White River. Try going out around 10:00 pm and fishing big streamers that really push water. Lots of big fish in that river, at least there were in the '80s. We used single hand 9 ft 8 wt, but spey rods would be a blast!

New Arkansas Spey Caster

Greetings from Arkansas - home of the White River. I'm an avid single hand fly fisher and just purchased a Sage Trout Spey HD in 4wt to chase big browns, cutthroat and rainbows below Bull Shoals Dam. The White is a big river with daily flows from 2,000 CFS to 18,000 CFS. During those larger releases, particularly during winter shad kills, a single hand streamer rod is a lot of work. After a trip to Oregon in June visiting some awesome fly shops and spending time catching fish on the South Santiam with a great guide, I was able to learn about spey casting. After watching countless videos I was hooked and made the investment. Looking forward to learning from everyone in here and hopefully contributing helpful information as a rookie in two handed casting.
