Spey rod

Quentin A spey rod works fine on still water. Spey casting is basically roll casting with a few twists. The longer rod allows a longer cast. I use a spey or roll cast when there's no room for a backcast and overhead casts when there is room. They're great on lakes and ponds. I do strap a plastic basket on my belt to collect line as it can get tangled in emergent vegetation otherwise.
