Question Clueless- need help

Greetings from Wyoming- I am interested in getting a spey rod for fishing reservoirs for trout here in my home state, but know nothing about spey casting- Have a chance to pick up a 12'6" 6wt rod- was wondering if this would apply for what I want- The resovoirs are high banked here, so I think this method could be useful- Thanks for any help-

I know next to nothing about spey casting but I think you need a current to fish spey style. Do your resevoirs have current? My guess is no.

Spey on a lake

Spey casting works fine on still water. It is a little easier with a current keeping the line taunt, but it is not required.

Still/slow moving water ...

pull up bob meiser's web site (he's a sponc.) and look at his light 'switch rods.' The 5-6 is a grand rod for low/slow/flat water and trout.

Line this with the WC 5-6 and you're good to go. At the Kauf' spey days Dennis/Sparks had a couple of new light end spey rods (CND/Winston) that were grand casting tools; check in with them on manufactures, spec's, price.

And the board continues my education. Spey works on calm and slow waters! Cool!
