    Learn to cast first. Try some rods before you buy something you will outgrow quickly. If cash is the issue, get something inexpensive and save your money for something of real quality.

    Depending on the components and difficulty of build you choose, $300 to $400.

    Best thing you can do is get lessons. You will learn what you need, what you don’t, and whether spey casting is even enjoyable for you.

    Or you can go flail on some river.

    Wow.....that is like asking who is the prettiest girl.....you are going to get a lot of opinions. Suggest you get with a local spey guy and follow his recommendations......Your profile doesn't say where you are from, so we don't know the size of your local water......
