line speed Jedi
There's so much information out there these days online that it's easy to get confused so I wanted to bring it back for you and clarify where to start. Brian Chou said it best in a recent interview I had with him:  Pick a rod and line setup and fish it! He's basically saying that sure, you need a balanced outfit,...

spey casting tips
When was the last time you listened to a podcast or interview that really moved you to do something?  Maybe it was a video that convinced you to actually get out and take action?  How about something as simple as Spey Casting Tips? I am obviously a little weird and extreme when it comes to fly fishing but that happened...
guest posting
In regards to spey casting, does this sound familiar at all: "Sometimes I get a nice spey cast out there but about half the time my line fails to shoot out straight on the water." "I end up checking my line after a short session to notice that I have a number of "wind" knots in my leader." "My cast lacks the...

mending the line
When I started out swinging flies with a spey rod, my cast wasn’t great.  In fact, it pretty much sucked.  But, because mending the line with the spey is pretty easy (think length), I was able to turn a bad cast into a great cast. After I piled my crappy cast out there, I only needed to pick up and turn over...
