Maybe we need a special spey line for the GL ?
That'll be a while.
Leaving aside the big water as that is well served, the bassbug or pike lines seem to do well close in. Funny though, the WC may be the best. Take a multi-tip WC and put a loop at the end of the head where the running line starts. Then you have a line for long distance and when reversed without the tips, it'll work short.
My chopped up WC hasn't been fished yet so I wouldn't suggest anybody else try this until I get it on the water, but I think it has potential.
If it works, I'll send an email to Jim Vincent suggesting he make a loop connection at the end of the head for us GLers.
