No turning back

I've fallen victim to the long line.

I picked up the 15' spey rod with a traditional long belly line and I don't think I will ever have the same excitement using a shorter two-handed rod for a long time.  The shear size of the rod and its power being able to lift almost 100' of line out of the water is something that is truly amazing.  I cannot seem to erase the slow and delicate nature of its cast out of my mind.  Something about the gracefulness of the line unfolding at such a long distance and peacefully landing on the water is something that I could go an entire day doing on the river and not even care about catching a fish.

While everyone seems to be on the switch rod and short spey craze I guess I'm going the opposite direction.
