Spey Rods and Two Handed Fly RodsSpey rods are also called "two-handed" rods and overlap with another name called "switch rods" as well. They are all essentially the same creature just living by various names. They are designed to be cast with two hands and offer the angler an easy and graceful way to make long casts gracefully with little effort. Spey style casting also allows the caster to make these casts with little to no backcast room behind them.
