Simon Gawesworth - spey advice
Single handed Trout & Salmon fishing since I was a boy. Actually love casting, not just fishing so, introduced to Spey casting on the last day of the season last year .........
Unfortunately, now seriously addicted.
Very much enjoyed your DVD throughout the winter months and then sought some serious instruction whilst comparing 15" 10# rods.
Now have a problem:
Wish to purchase rod & reel which is usually easy just try and buy. However after less than 4 hours instruction on Spey casting I don't feel I'm in a position to know that the rod I may be getting on well with now might not be for me in a months time (they seem very different to me).
I have a bias towards Sage single handed rods but found the action on the Sage DH too tip-flex and difficult to use and ironically found the rod that I got along with best was the Hardy Demon (full flex) I only own 1 old Hardy stream rod, although I like some of their reels. However, as I hopefully improve this might change or maybe not, I really don't know. The point is I want to purchase to practice. How would you advise.
On another note I have been generally advised that as far as DH Salmon fishing is concerned I need to purchase a reel with a superior drag system on it such as an Abel but at around £700 I have reservations at this early stage.
On the subject of spey casting I've noticed subtle differences between your style and those I'm being taught i.e. use of shotgun lift. Is it possible to book tuition with you on the Spey?
