Paul, may have a 'new' Burkie 13-9 coming as the

replacement for my 14' GL3 8-9. Also have an extra (I'll have to confirm I'm not mis-typing here) Mastery 10-11 reel(s). If these will work ... we Canadian's need to stick together. I'll give you a $ number that will be well within your budget.

If interested, contact me off line.

Norseman Hi Juro....thanks for the reply....the reason behind the short spey rod is this seems to be all that is avail in an 8/9 weight these days.....any advise you can give is apprciated...pros and cons of long vs. short.....Paul

juro Just curious, you have named three "short" spey rods - is there a reason behind this? You may find it easier to locate a 14 footer, and possibly find it more suitable for general use as well.

Good luck with your search!

Wanted...Spey set up

Good day to everyone: I have been prowling this site now for a couple of weeks, and I am happy to say you have convinced me to try my hand at spey casting. I live in Nelson BC, I typically fish the Columbia river for resident rainbows that run into the teens. A typical spring fish would range 4-6 lbs, but thanks to the Americans, we will soon have triploid steehead showing up in our waters, in the next few years that easily tip the scales at 14-18 lbs. I also fish the Dean, Vedder and want to start on the Thompson.

My question is this. I am limited to approx $800 Canadian dollars ( I know that this equals about 400 US dollars....grin grin). I am looking at three different outfits now and would like your advise;
I have decided that the 8/9 weight setup will be my choice

1- Loop blue or green series spey in the 12'4" 8/9 with either a Loop traditional 3Wide spool or an Evotech 8-12

2- Orvis Trident TLS in 12'4" in an 8/9 Wt. With an Orvis Battenkill large arbour # VI size

3- Guideline ( Loomis GL-3 made for Norway) 13' 8/9 Wt with a Hardy Salmon #2 or Hardy Disk 8/9/10

Perhaps you have something that you are wanting to sell

I am an experienced caster and have tied for nearly 35 yrs. All of my gear so far is Sage one handers and all Hardy reels.

I am not rich enough to afford a sage Spey, and not afraid to think outside the box, hence the loop selection

thanks in advance

Best regards....Paul
