Rio's New Spey Line, Grand Spey

Well, here we go again.

In the new Kali Fly Fisher, October 2002, Rio is advertising on page 3 (actually the first page past the inside cover, the whole page) their Spey lines.

It looks like they may be dropping their Accelerator line as it is not mentioned. The Windcutter, Midspey, and Grand Spey are advertised as their 3 Spey lines.

There is nothing on their website at this time.

Does anyone know about this new line?

Dana, it appears that we need a section just on Spey Lines.

Thanks for the kind words on the GrandSpey. It is a relief when a line you design works! Mind you, it took 13 prototypes before I was happy with the line - the one at the Spey Clave in May was only prototype number 3 - for those that tried it!

For those that want to know when it will be available, the floating versions are now manufactured and will be in shops as soon as the dealers order them. The interchangeable tip version will be a couple more weeks. The wait should be worthwhile, though, as you should see our new loops!!!

By the way, I meant to add on my last email that Jim designed the MidSpey. I had nothing to do with the design of that, just tried it and fell in love with it!

Credit, where credit's due!
