Getting Line Out For Spey Casting

RIO Products

This week’s RIO Fly Fishing Tip shows how to get enough fly line outside your rod tip to make a Spey cast. One of the hardest things for new Spey casters to pick up is how to go from a very short line, with the the fly line on the reel, to have enough line outside the rod to make a good Spey cast. In this video Simon Gawesworth shows a couple of quick, efficient ways to get to that point.

RIO's Fly Fishing Tips series are short, less-than-a-minute videos, each bought to you by a RIO employee or ambassador and showing a single fly fishing tip to help you become a better fly fisher. The series includes freshwater, saltwater and Spey topics, and a mix of casting, fishing and gear tips - some basic, some technical, and everything in between.

Each new tip is released on RIO's Facebook and Instagram pages every Friday, so if you like the sound of this series and want to get these tips quickly, be sure to follow RIO on these platforms.
