Spey fishing is not just about catching a fish. It's about the rhythm of working through a run. Cast, mend, step. It's about the search for a particular fish. Not every fish is a streamer eater. It's about the method. A tight line swing provides a direct connection between the anger and the fish during the aggressive take. It's about reaching a level of maturity as an angler. You must be content to trade quantity for quality. Spey fishing targets only the most aggressive fish, so the fight is generally furious. And it's about taking your fly game to the next level. Spey fishing is a challenge to any angler. And once you enter the spey game, the addiction drives you. Because everything comes together: the rhythm, the search, the method, and the quality of the take. The tug really is the drug. And it drives us.
