I went up to the north platte on saturday and learned to spey cast and wee happened to hook up with some really nice browns on steamers. If you all get the chance you should float the norht platte, it is on fire up on grey reef.
Its using a really long two handed rod. you dont false cast with it, and you use streamers. its normally used for salmon or steelhead. You can cast much farther when you get good with it than you can with a conventional flyrod. its used for covering a lot of water on the big salmon rivers
A Speyrod is a long (10-18 feet), two handed fly rod. A Speycast is a method of casting reasonably long distances when you have a limited amount of room behind you. Most often you speycast with a speyrod. But some folks say that speycasting with a normal rod can be very helpful in some situations. Learning how to speycast is on my to-do list this year.
A 10 to 18 foot rod? As Peter Boyles alsways says on Everybody Loves Raymond "Holy CRAP" How does a fish play on a rod like that. I know I love catching fish on my flyrod. Is it like that but amplified? Sound pretty fun!
