A couple of weeks ago I traveled to South America and fished the fabled Rio Grande River for sea-run brown trout from the comfort of Kau Tapen lodge with friend Oliver White. We fished mostly two-handed rods with a number of different line set-ups.
Oliver, while very humble, has seen and done it all in the fly fishing world. He owns a couple of lodges in the Bahamas and knows a thing or two about gear. We got to talking one night about how confusing the two handed line thing has become for new spey and switch anglers and he basically set me straight. It boils down to three different types. It’s that easy. Watch the video and you’ll see what I mean.
