New to Spey (CND USER ADVICE)

New to Spey (CND USER ADVICE)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Im currently looking into purchasing a spey rod/reel/line and need some guidance. I took a lesson just recently and now im hooked. I currently own a 9'6 8 weight that I use on the Salmon River in Idhao and find it a little bit to much some times. Looking at getting something low on the dollar scale.

CND CUSTOM:
CNF-1307SP 13'0" 7/8
CNF-1308SP 13'0" 8/9

CND EXPERT:
CNF-1306 13'0" 6/7
CNF-1308 13'0" 8/9

I will be fishing mostly the Salmon River in Idhao for steelhead but still want to go after the trouts In Idaho and Utah.

How does the rating system work with CND? Is a 6/7 a 6 or a 7?

Reel Opinions?
Line Opinions?

Mike has been mentioned a lot as the man to go to. Loaners for test casting?

IMHO the 1308 Expert is hard to beat for the $325. It really casts well with the Rio Midspey 7/8, the Windcutter 7/8/9 with tips or without; also the SA 7/8 spey.

I think you will find Mike more than willing to send you a loaner(s). He sent me a group of three rods last summer as well as lines, a line winder, and all the rest. Send him an email or pm and see what he will do for you. You will not find better service or a more helpful person than Mike.
