Big water, big flies, big fish. All three are reasons why a spey rod can come in handy. The end result: an angler who can cast larger flies for longer distances to find those hard to reach areas of the river that hold those big fish. Two-handed spey casting techniques create more powerful casts and also avoid obstacles on the shore by minimizing the need to back cast. When it is time to think about a new spey rod or upgrading your existing equipment, these spey rods are ones you should consider.
