I've been kicking around the idea of picking spey up. Some of you may know that I broke both of my wrists last year and sinse then I've been in pursit of lowering the weight and swing weight of my rod/reel combos. I was talking to one of my buds at Cabelas last week and he mentioned spey. His point was you can toss line easier and further without messing with wrists and shoulders. He even said I could pick up a 13' 7/8 wt that I could use for both trout and steelhead. It's on my mind now. I never really gave it much thought before because it seemed so alien. I live 8 minutes (walking distance) from the Spokane River where I can practice the cast, so I dont have any excuse not to build skill. My question to you all is; what do you think of the broad coverage of that 7/8wt rod for both species...is there such thing as a magic bullet? Any line suggestions? -ie grain size or head? How about rod suggestions? As a newbie to the spey game I am looking for any insight before I make any purchases. Thanks gang.
