Are you interested in learning more about the wonderful world of Spey Fishing? We get that this can be an intimidating topic to explore. Words like skagit and scandi sound like something out of a Norwegian dictionary and the term MOW is not telling you to cut your grass. We promise you that spey fishing is not as difficult as some of the expert casters can make it appear. As with learning anything new, a good teacher can help simplify a topic and have you self sufficient in no time. Today we share with you a video of Rio’s brand manager and world renowned Spey instructor, Simon Gawesworth, as he goes over an introduction of “Trout Spey.” It serves as a great starting point for anyone looking to get into the world of two handed rods. He covers topics like skagit vs scandi, swinging streamers vs soft hackles, MOW tips and versi leaders. Spey fishing is one of our favorite ways to fish a river and we found this video to be incredibly helpful to anyone looking to learn how to rig their first two handed set up!
