    It's a great cast to learn with that's about it though. singles doubles and spirals are much more powerful and disturb the water MUCH less and they lend themselves to better casts because your anchor isn't a mess. pointed in the wrong direction

    It's truly amazing how much time your fly spends in the water with a Delta and a single Spey.

    That said I need room for a single or double. I can fish a snap T from the jungle though.

    The
    The whole "disturbing the water" thing was the single biggest thing that slowed my interest in spey casting- I always figured that ripping sound would scare the shit out of fish

    Try to get your hands on a ballistic vector it's front taper is heavy enough you can cast it like a scandi until you have the room for the rest of the head.
    As for casts look into the contrive loop.
