Two-handed rods are synonymous with Spey casting. Some anglers come to embrace Spey casting for its seemingly effortless delivery, some for its romance and grace; whatever your draw there’s no denying the amazing efficiency of these rods in a wide variety of fishing situations.
Presenting Steelhead and Spey flies in remote BC? Got it. Swinging soft hackles or streamers on the MO for big browns or bows? You bet! Skating dries in the surface film for Steelhead on the Trinity or N.Umpqua? Hell Ya. Casting traditionally dressed Salmon flies for Atlantic Salmon on the Restigouche? Oui, Oui! These rods do it all.
And they do it well.
Burkheimer designs rods with wide grain windows, forgiving actions and loads of feel. Feel might seem like an esoteric thing, but it’s the intrinsic expression of the soul of the rod. Rods with feel enhance an angler’s enjoyment and performance, and those things aren’t just the domain of guides or instructors. Talk to us about these rods and you may hear us describe them as having “grunt”, or “whump” or “hooahh”. That’s the Burkie feel, and you’ll feel it too.
