Spey and Switch Techniques for Trout

by Fred Telleen

I remember watching Sage Fly Rod representative George Cook some years ago, bombing casts across the Kenai. While the casting was impressive, I did not see the need for that style of fishing. True, it was a good way for a shore-bound angler to cover lots of water, but really, the rods were just too big and made too much commotion. I understood the usage for searching out steelhead, but honestly, it was no mystery as to where the rainbows were.

As the years have gone on, I’ve had a few guiding clients show up with Spey rods as well. We’d usually monkey around with them for awhile and then go back to fishing my standard single-hand sticks. Occasionally, I’d find a use for them running mega-long drifts with indicators, but it was just as easy to fish the same water from the boat. This content is available for subscribers only.
