    I had a question ask of me the other day that I cannot answer.
    Where in which book or letter was the word spey put together with the word cast?
    I thought it was in Fine and Far Off by Jock Scott. But I might have missed it or got switch cast mixed up with speycast.
    Please let me know chapters and verse.

    Maybe someone was standing in the River Spey, in Scotland, and was casting a spey rod and just put the two together.
