The fly fishing rods they are using are spey rods. Casting with one of these rods is different from your normal fly fishing rod. For some of you that may not know what spey casting is here is a great definition of the method.
Spey casting is a casting technique used in fly fishing. Spey casting can be accomplished with either a normal length fly rod, or a rod referred to as a double-handed fly rod, often called a Spey rod. Spey rods can also be used for standard overhead casting.
Spey casting is used for fishing large rivers for salmon and large trout such as steelhead and sea troutt. Spey technique is also used in saltwater surf casting. All of these situations require the angler to cast larger flies long distances. The two-handed Spey technique allows more powerful casts and avoids obstacles on the shore by keeping most of the line in front of the angler.
The water can get a little deeper and it’s current can get fast so you need good stable boots that will help in staying stable. There are lots of dangers that you have to be aware of to keep yourself safe. Which is all part of fishing anywhere.
What an adventure this would be not only is the fishing fantastic but the scenery is amazing. The water is so beautiful, clean and clear.
