Trout Spey / switch rod blank 11’ #2/3 spey line (5-piece) $88.84


Trout Spey / switch 11’ #2/3 DH (spey casting 200-250gr) (5-piece)

A light line trout spey in a travel friendly 5-piece configuration, with black rod sock.   

Medium-fast progressive action 30T carbon blank satin metallic olive green, sanded finish. 

Best suited to surface and subsurface applications where you might use a 4/5wt single handed rod, pick a heavier rated rod for deep sinking lines or weighted streamer fishing.

Line recommendations

Below grain weight and head length guidelines for water-anchored spey style roll casting.  Line preference is personal to your casting style and end use, be prepared to experiment.  

We preferred: A short (17’-20’) Skagit head 200-250 grains with a 5-8’ polytip/polyleader, head plus tip up to around 25’. 

For Scandi applications try a single handed spey or switch style line of a similar grain rating and a total head length including tip (if the line design requires one) of 25-30’ (a SH line will probably not require a polyleader). 

Overhead single-handed casting: performs well for a rod this length with a punchy WF #4 (120-140gr) for upstream dry and nymph.

For rod testing we used flat mono shooting line and a poly tip or poly leader of 5-8’ with Maxcatch 17' skagit heads (fantastic for the low price).   If using a poly tip (with a PVC loop both ends) finish off with a short (4-7’) tapered nylon leader for best fly turnover.  With a poly leader (PVC loop one end, nylon line the other) simply add a few feet of your final tippet.    

For two handed casting use a foregrip of 9-11", rear grip of 3.5-5" - see linked products below.
