Yesterday I was able to get out and do a little saltwater fishing with a couple of friends. Two of them were using spey rods and were able to cut through the wind (30mph) and cast twenty feet farther than I could with a standard shooting head single handed rod. I found it very interesting because I have heard that on the East Coast fly fisherman use spey rods to fish for stripers on the beach and jetties. Do any of you have experience doing this and what types of lines do you use? The line that my friends were using was an Airflo two handed 40plus Ridge line. I am not sure how many grains were on the sinking head. I thought this would be a lot of fun to play with when fishing the estuary for salmon.
