Hi All,

For an Off the Beach setup I have been using a Loop 8116 with a Loop 8/9 adapted head and Poly leaders. The kit has been working very successfully It can either be cast underhanded, especially in tight quarters, or overhanded. One feature of using a 2 handed system off the beach is the lack of false casting. Just pickup the line and shoot. Farther and faster than a single hander. The benefit is the fly spends more time fishing.

Juro, does the Atlantis spey cast well? Was it deigned strictly as an overhead rod for conventional flylines?

Cheers N I
