Re: Which taper - What line?

If I was to take these tests again I would without question use the RIO single hand Spey. Which one would I choose? A 6# and I might also be tempted to knock a foot or two off the tip to get the length into the mid 30’s. Headlength on the singlehand spey is targeted at 33 feet, I wouldn't knock any...

Re: Which taper - What line?

If I was to take these tests again I would without question use the RIO single hand Spey.

Re: Swedish Worlds 2020

Crap, sorry to hear mate! Problems in the same line here, one almost certain member of the team had to hand in early too, and probably can't go now...

What cures do you use when casting RHU?
