    In an effort to override the bead & bobber controversy, I would like to see if there is any interest in a seminar on how to use a luhr jensen side planer and hot shots with a speyrod and scandi head. This method is fool proof in the wind & eliminates the need to learn all of the spey casts. and since your using 25 feet of fly line it's a legal fly fishing method .

    Side planning is much more advanced than trolling, And there are very few subject matter experts on the subject

    Jezzus, lighten up a bit. Our rivers are closed so we play around on the internet but, no, you want to shut that down also. If you don't like the post freakin' ignore it. If it isn't anything anybody wants to talk about the thread will scroll off the board in short order. Sticking your freakin' nose in and telling people what to do only keeps it going.

    Now-now Kerry lighten up. We all know that some posters shouldn't be allowed on the Internet if they have a large 'Adult Beverage' in hand.

    Besides, with a switch rod, the side plainer idea just might work. That said, the use of a Scandi head might be questionable. I'd vote for a long belly line of some sort ....

    I'm in! And while everyone is on the bank waiting their turn for a 1-on-1 lesson I will be demonstrating the fine art of fly kites with a spey rod, while butt naked.

    if one wanted to stay classic one should use an old Triangle Taper Long Belly for a line, looking deeper , use an "American Made" side planer as well

    I've got a long belly triangle taper that I'm going to try out on my bamboo fly rod, add a balsa wood that is hand painted and I should be pretty damn retro. I even have a tweed irish cap that a friend sent me a short while back. I should be set. I'll use this rig out on the Hoh at 10,000 cfs and hang on for some big predatory fish action.

    Fred Likes! No Baby Boo's here, but do have a 'Boo 13 foot 2-hander which would be very much in line with the context of this thread.

    Like an old Hardy Heavyweight?

    I remember McNeese showed me one of those things years ago. It was a like a 17 footer and weighed about 17 lbs .... perfect for side planing at 10000 cfs + ,,,maybe 12000, like above though, hold on tight, one of those 700lb tuna may be lurking

    WW , what type of line do you recomend(skagit, scandi, longbelly) I'm guessing by your mode of dress this will be a summer time demo on youngs bar perhaps? I'm betting between you , kerrys & I we could put on a speyclave nobody would forget.

    We will need to get mumbles down there with his boat and the new "pole" to really add a taste of class to this thing.
