    This .... nicely summarized Wayne.

    Now I'm not sure it's that big a deal, but it bothers me not being able to keep a tight line while retrieving/stripping.

    Hey I get what you’re saying more like s-curves in the head. Don’t sweat it, those trout will straighten those out in a split second. If it drives you crazy try a spey light line, I just purchased one for my Redington three wt and it is magical.

    I spey cast quite often from my boat on stillwaters. I always use a single hand rod mostly with a WF clear intermediate line. The spey cast allows me to change directions in one cast to cover a rising fish. I used to throw a handful of false casts to change directions but by the time the cast landed the fish was usually long gone. Seems to work with my 8 1/2' and 9' rods and also with my WF floating lines. No need for specialized rods and lines. Tom
