    interesting. Been on speypages reading about long rods, 16'+. Decided I'd fish a 16'er tonight and think I'll tie on a penis evening and swing her through. Not many fish around so extra flash might help, I sure hope so.

    I may or may not have knowledge of another participant in this thread using a spey rod to pull plugs from a drift boat.

    That's it...this fall I'm going to pull a pink worm behind a black mag wart on my 2 hander. Maybe with a bead trailer....I feel dirty just talking about it.

    Well I've done a few things that I'm not exactly proud of... But that doesn't mean I wouldn't like to try them out again!!!!

    A semi digression...but...Tom McNally wrote about using spinners with a pork rind strip for bass in his book "Fly Fishing".
    PG 307 if you find a copy of the book from 1978.

    The BandWagon emerges. Where the hell have you been! I still think about you casting your two hander trying to ignore the "crying cowboy" music that kid was blasting at the boat launch at 6am. Still cracks me up.
