Oh say can you spey? Updated in post #22! This thread and your responses have been great. Thank you all. I have a new question posted down in entry #22 of this thread. If you don't mind checking it out and letting me know your thoughts on just getting started I appreciate it greatly. Well, I've been thinking about this spey side and pondering giving it a whirl. I have no idea what the hell I'm doing, but I'll start with the fabulous WFFF Search Tool. Any input on how to begin using my soon to arrive TFO Deer Creek 13'6" 8/9 would be appreciated. I'm sure I impluse bought something but it did not cost me too much. Joe might even say that the money is going to a good cause. Thanks in advance, and if you stumble upon some dude that looks like my avatar totally wound up in a fly line tripped over into the surf and bobbing in the waves...pull me to shore if you please!
