The Spey angler’s arena is exacting and exhausting. Seams and structure are often in the middle or far side of the river; bushes behind and trees above complicate casting the necessary distance. Deep and fast currents, combined with slick bedrock and boulders, make wading arduous. All the while, extreme weather – rainforest deluges, high desert glare, or never-ending daylight – continuously tests resolve. Nevertheless, the simple fact remains that the more time the fly is in the water, the better the odds of an encounter. To maximize their chances, the Spey angler needs a rod that delivers the fly precisely, repeatedly, with minimal fatigue. They need an intuitive, easy-to-cast, optimized, and fine-tuned rod for their application.
