A great pattern with a ton of movement.  Can be tied in a variety of colors.   In Dec Hogan’s book it’s black and red (original dressing) however a box full of these in lots of colors would cover you for sure.

With more and more anglers using 2 handed rods and spey casting techniques these days, looks like Rio is trying to capitalize on the trend.   Looks like some great products on the market and hopefully just the beginning.

RIO’s award winning InTouch Single Hand Spey Line from RIO Products on Vimeo.

RIO’s award winning (Best new Fly line for 2016 – EFTTEX 2015) InTouch Single Handed Spey line has been designed to be a fantastic tool for anglers that prefer/need to perform roll and single-handed Spey casts. The rear weight distribution loads a rod deeply in the tightest of quarters, allowing anglers to make long, effortless casts with obstacles close behind.

Though primarily designed for roll casting, this line also performs exceptionally easy overhead casts with incredibly smooth loop control. Built on RIO’s ultra-low stretch ConnectCore the line provides groundbreaking levels of sensitivity and performance.

The line is available in WF4F to WF8F

RIO’s InTouch Long Head Spey from RIO Products on Vimeo.

RIO’s InTouch Long Head Spey line has been designed for bigger rivers and long two-handed and Spey rods.
A series of sophisticated tapers and steps in the line design makes this one of the easiest casting long belly lines on the market, and a total joy to cast. The rear weight distribution ensures the rod loads easily, while the unique front taper design allows energy to unroll effortlessly to the fly – resulting in easy and effortless distance. The line is built with RIO’s ultra-low stretch ConnectCore for the very best in efficiency and load.

The line is available in 7/8 to 10/11 sizes.

A Heartfelt Thank You From All Of Us At Spey Nation

Jul 14, 2015   //   by Geoff Schaake   //   Cack Handed, Like Minded Mofos, Mojo, Spey Nation Supporters  //  Comments Off on A Heartfelt Thank You From All Of Us At Spey Nation

A Message of Thanks From Spey Nation

It is My Great Pleasure, to be writing to you on behalf of the team of volunteers that make our Spey Nation Gathering on the banks of our beloved Salmon River in Upstate, NY possible.   Please accept our most heartfelt thank you as without you, the manufacturers, representatives, presenters, and Spey Nation guests, we would not have the success we have enjoyed over the past 8 years. With your help and generosity of both time, money, and equipment donated, you have ensured the continuation of our work by fully funding Spey Nation IX as well as allowing us to make another sizable annual donation to the Fish Creek Atlantic Salmon Club.  As you know, making our fishery a better place for all and restoring native fish populations in Upstate NY are our primary objectives.  I hope you had as much fun as we did over the course of the weekend and I am looking forward to seeing you all next year for Spey Nation IX!

Sincerely,

Spey Nation!

This is a bit long to watch while your boss might walk in on you but the scenery alone is worth the watch.
