Podcast: Spey Casting Simplified (kind of) with Pete Kutzer

This week, we had lots of great questions in the Fly Box because I have not done a podcast in a few weeks—so there were lots of good ones in my inbox. We talk about using the Non-Slip Mono Loop knot for fresh water, tippet rings, tough rising fish, Depth Charge Lines, fly boxes for big dries, click-and-pawl reels for trout, up vs. down vs. ring eyes for fly hooks—plus two great suggestions from listeners: one on casting fatigue and the other on a very innovative way to dry CDC flies. (See the video below)

And in the main event, casting instructor extraordinaire Pete Kutzer and I try to simplify Spey casting and lines for two-handed rods. I am not sure we simplified it much but hopefully it will answer some of your questions.

  1. Hi,
    I’m a bit unsure as to what I should do. I have an Access 8 weight switch rod with the corresponding Orvis switch line. I’ve always had difficulty throwing larger flies, even after several casting lessons with it.
    Is getting the Hydros Spey System the solution, or would I be happier with a Skagit setup?
