A Novice Spey Angler
https://www.nationalprostaff.com/r239635-a-novice-spey-angler


Watching a Spey fly casting angler casting with the various smooth casting techniques I often found myself thinking there is no way I could do learn that or even afford the tackle. Often Spey angler can easily power line out without a back over the shoulder cast, as I would have using a single hand fly rod.
With advance technology, manufactures have been able to create high end products at more affordable prices.
Today?s age of electronic communications, it?s easy to explore web sites though forums, web pages and social media that want to share their knowledge to expand the Spey angling community.
Being a well-versed fisherman using single fly rods I decide to make the change. It all started when Amundson Outdoors sending me their WIND WARRIOR SPEY ROD 4-PC 14 feet 3 inch 9 wt., Spey rod to challenge our large salmon in our local rivers.

I found trying to complete the set up with the various lines was over whelming. There is allot off advise from fishermen, forums, web sites, you tube and retailers. Every option was different.
As a novice sooner or later you have to make a decision. I decided to write to Rio Products for advice and they responded quickly based on the rod size and weight and the large salmon I was targeting. Also keeping in mind that I will be fishing small rivers tossing large flies and weighted flies and being a novice.
My adventures will be from a novices view with all the trials and tribulations experience of my learning curve.
My objective is to help those that want to but hesitate from experiencing this amazing technique.

Finally all plans are coming together. Going to be the guest of IGUIDEBC and drifting down the upper Cowichan River. As I gather the spey rod with my flies I know Alex West owner and operator will hook me up with some nice Coho salmon. Stay tune for this novice spey angler sharing his Spey casting adventure.

Turned out a wonderful day to drift the upper portion of the Cowichan River. We started at little beach launching site with the pull out being Skutz Falls. We targeted Coho and there was a tremendous amount of Coho and trout at the launch site but this area was there spawning grounds . It was exciting watching them working the reds and competing between them selves. Alas we left them alone and started our downward drift. We couldn't find heavy concentration of cohos and those we saw were on the move. We caught Rainbow trouts, Brown Trouts, and cutthroat trout. Topping it off finding a school of jack springs that chased are flies aggressively. We never did hook up with a coho but we had allot of fun drifting and I learned allot about spey casting from Alex. The speed of the Cowichan river flow I should have used maybe a heavier fly or a heavier sink tip.I was using a t11 and should have been t18 sinking tip. All the great part of learning.
