"69" Juro's on the mark, but think the 'no e mails' is a function of (the greater "we") don't know how to contact you by e mail. No one's ignoring your suggestion, just not the 'how to.'

Another view of 'why spey rods.' With a single hander you spend 50-70% of your time winding up to cast. With a spey rod the transition from end of drift to next is 1-3 seconds. Period, end. As an old...
