Jeff Putnam, Federation of Fly Fishers certified Casting Instructor based in Northern California has put together a series of great high-definition videos on YouTube on how and when to use the new “Switch” Fly rods. Switch rods are a hybrid between a singlehanded rod and a spey rod. An eleven-foot graphite rod is light enough to cast overhand, but long enough to make them work as a spey outfit. The switch rod has become popular for indicator fishermen, mending for drag free drift.
Watch these on the blog, or switch over to YouTube for the High Def versions.
