First it was teenage girls buying all the grade A grizzly hackle and now the bass spin guys are buying flyfishing spey rods! I was watching a bass show yesterday and the guys were using spey rods with their bait casting reels! Evidently, it is the latest thing in the world of bass angling. It has become so popular in the bass States that fly shops are running out of spey rods! There is a rod length limit for B.A.S.S. tournaments but there is talk of doing away with that limit so spey rods may be used. It seems they like the spey rods because it makes "flipping" worms much easier and working jigs. They claim that they also gain sensitivity when a bass picks up a jig. Incredible. If anyone is thinking about buying a spey rod you'd better do so before the rod companies sell every one they have to bass shops. It's always something.
