I’m not even close to being a proficient spey caster so when I find and little tip or trick that helps me I’m apt to listen.

The old climbers trick, shown here by Andrew Bennett of Deneki Outdoors is a great solution to stopping that tangled mess that always seems to happen (at least to me) when striping running line fishing a spey, switch, or even just long cast with a larger weight rod.

Hope this helps everyone out there that tangles line like me.
