3-Dimensional Spey Casting Fly Lines
In all cases, successful Spey casting requires fine line control and split-second timing. The amount of line exposed to the rear of the caster is of paramount importance. During the concluding moments of a Single & Double Spey or Snake Roll, a ‘D’ loop is formed alongside and to the rear of the caster. Optimum ‘rod loading’ is achieved when the ‘D’ loop is at maximum stretch and the fly line ‘head’ and rear taper are almost completely outside of the tip ring. If executed using a perfectly balanced line, this intentional hinging’ of the rear taper not only improves the potential for narrowing the loop in the forward cast but it also increases both line speed and distance... we call this the ‘Optimum Rod-Load Point’.
