Your buddy has one!:beer2:
Reason #1-a: Because it's COOL!
Because chicks dig long rods!
What happened to the fact that they fish good? http://www.washingtonflyfishing.com/board/images/smilies/beathead.gif
because I already own too many single handers.:rofl:
I like bob's answer! screw the fact they are great for big water, you just look sooooo much cooler than single handed guys, thats why Im trying to learn
I used to think the best reason was so that I could fish from the high bank side of the river. It ain't the only reason, but it's still one of the best.
...he with the longest sword wins and gets to fish the run first
look good, fish well....
1.) Ease of use on body
2.) Fly is in the water longer, thus increasing your odds
Good workout, even when you don't hookup.
Because you get enough rod to have a good fishing tool and have enough left over to make a darn nice wading staff!!
No false casts. One cast and full distance. You are fishing longer.
I don't think this statement is true,"you are fishing longer". I have fished with many spey casters and to tell the truth I think that my fly is in the water about the same length. It might not be out as far but it is in the water about the same
Most quarter their casts down stream and I go across. To me it seems the same. I get out a good 60 to 70 feet on my single hander and when I did the spey thing it was just a little farther.
But this is just the opinion of an old man and should not be taken seriously..
Don't worry Jim, it wasn't.:rofl:
