It's not stopping me, though. I have ulterior motives other than the traditional swinging of flies for steelhead or salmon. Seeing as I'm from Colorado and we have no anadromous fish to feed I want learn the technique for swinging streamers from bank to bank covering as much water as I can. It's also quite helpful with small rods on tiny creeks with overgrown vegetation. I'm curious if anybody out there swings a spey rod or utilizes spey techniques on their own water for fish other than salmon and steelhead and why.
