Gents:

After my first season with a two-hander, it's apparent already that large D-loops are out of the question for 90% of the rivers I fish. Several posts have suggested that when we start out, trying to learn Traditional, Scandinavian, and Skagit techniques simultaneously can be confusing and that sticking to one discipline is the best bet.

Could you please discuss the relative merits (advantages) of the Skagit and the Scandinavian delivery methods.

Also. if you could describe the basic differences (design) of the lines used for each.

I'll be purchasing my second spey rod this XMAS (Snowbee Tamar) and would love to see a video and a line in my stocking.


Thanks mucho.....Dave

Very often Scandinavian Underhand style is associated with long 18 ft leader. It is true when fishing with floating head.
This style is also very effective with floating head and sinking polyleaders or entire sinking shooting head and needs only limited space behind (advantage to longer belly lines).
