Adding a 10wt belly improved casting

Hey guys, thanks a million for being such great hosts on my visit last week. I owe ya when (not if) you visit the northeast for some stripah!

Just wanted to comment on the addition of a 10ft section of 10wt DT belly to the end of my Spey head before the sinktip after I fished with most of you and the improvement it made. I like the short compact Spey head casting stroke for it's ease, but even the 10' less stripping between casts made a difference. It also opened up the stroke a little giving it more of a long belly feel. The few spiral rolls I tried (which were impossible with a short head) worked a lot better with the extension.

I'll be trying the accellerator formula per our discussions in the near future, and plan to do some Spey casting next weekend if things work out. (Jay - will call you tonight)

An AWESOME crew in the pacific northwest!</center>
