Wanted...Spey set up

Good day to everyone: I have been prowling this site now for a couple of weeks, and I am happy to say you have convinced me to try my hand at spey casting. I live in Nelson BC, I typically fish the Columbia river for resident rainbows that run into the teens. A typical spring fish would range 4-6 lbs, but thanks to the Americans, we will soon have triploid steehead showing up in our waters, in the next few years that easily tip the scales at 14-18 lbs. I also fish the Dean, Vedder and want to start on the Thompson.

My question is this. I am limited to approx $800 Canadian dollars ( I know that this equals about 400 US dollars....grin grin). I am looking at three different outfits now and would like your advise;
I have decided that the 8/9 weight setup will be my choice

1- Loop blue or green series spey in the 12'4" 8/9 with either a Loop traditional 3Wide spool or an Evotech 8-12

2- Orvis Trident TLS in 12'4" in an 8/9 Wt. With an Orvis Battenkill large arbour # VI size

3- Guideline ( Loomis GL-3 made for Norway) 13' 8/9 Wt with a Hardy Salmon #2 or Hardy Disk 8/9/10

Perhaps you have something that you are wanting to sell

I am an experienced caster and have tied for nearly 35 yrs. All of my gear so far is Sage one handers and all Hardy reels.

I am not rich enough to afford a sage Spey, and not afraid to think outside the box, hence the loop selection

thanks in advance

Best regards....Paul
