Hitting the Snoqualmie the day after xmas. I've never been there, so there will be some hunting around. Anyone want to join me?
Tired, cigar. Got it. I'll be the guy with the gray beanie cap not catching fish.I'll be there at the Day on the River too! Stop by, and look for the tired guy w/ a cigar hanging out of his mouth...
Yep! I spent 95% of the lesson time this morning learning spey casting with a 1-hander. Really great fun, and looks like a really useful technique. I've still got a lot to learn about it, but this was a great introduction!I would join you if i wasn't stuck in my cubicle today!!!
so this may be a pretty stupid question but being new to the sport I don't feel so bad asking.
Can you spey cast with a traditional fly rod? I know spey rods are two handed but would the same technique still apply? If so, Id like to see you some of you guys there on saturdays
I was also there and practiced with my 1-hander. I tried a switch rod for the first time in my life and needless to say it makes spey casting MUCH, MUCH easier, but the basics are the same. Great introduction and lots of useful tips on how to cast in strong wind (very windy morning). Jason, FlyBil, TMIB... nice to meet you!Yep!
