Yes, that's the one...really like it, not too heavy, nice feel...
Thanks for that Pat or I was going to have to ask. Difficult if you are a noob who wants to try it out when you know nothing. Funny that I used to live a stone's throw from the Spey. Prince Charles did it and he was so obviously a dickhead I wouldn't have been seen dead with a spey rod.....
arrgh, there is a spey casting event on new years day just above the train bridge on the vedder, i will be there as will many other spey fishers if you want some pointers and to try out a bunch of combos stop by.
If I am not in a coma I will do that Pat, thanks!
Bankers hours for this, seems wise considering the date.
If I could only have one....13-6" would be a good all around 2hander. Since most rods are between 12 and 15'.....13' 6" seems like the natural compromise size. Probably go with a #8/9.
This thread is starting to sound like a Christmas wish list .. ; )
Find it strange how you would be asking this Rick, I thought you were an expert on spey gear
I remember fishing on the opposite side of the Vedder from you (you were spey casting) and your fly was landing within a couple of feet of me each cast, impressive casting.
I do now own a Spey rod and its 13' this size was suggested by my local store based on the info i gave them as to what and where i would be fishing.
Having hooked a steelhead (first day out with a Spey rod) i love it
just need more practice with the casting

Im with Pat about the 13' 7wt 1307 Scott LS2's Extremely light in the hand and the backbone to control a decent size fish. The perfect balance from everything I have casted. Love my 13'2" 9wt Loop Yellow line but I need to have a good run of chinooks to cast at so I am a little more limited with it.
