I got my hands on a Spey rod for the first time this weekend and now I NEED one. Does anyone here know much about spey rodding? What company should I look into to get myself one? Has anyone seen the new ZPEY spey rods?

I've never fished a spey rod, but I do like the 11' z- axis.... I also have a friend who fishes steelhead with a tfo spey and really seems to like it.fwiw

Thanks Jeff. I was using my friends Echo rod. I really love what Tim Rajeff did only problem I had with it was the ferrules seemed very lose on it even though my friend had them taped. Does anyone know if this is common or what?

spey rods are coming back. work great for areas where its tough to get a lot of room on a backcast. I would look for one with a detachable bottom. so you can have what looks like a regular fly pole, attach the bottom 6 or 7 inches and shazam! spey rod!
I have seen nothing more beautiful than the sunrise on a cold stream.
