Spey casters and dedicated long-rod fishermen are making a return to longer bellied lines and all the advantages they bring.

Airflo’s Delta Spey line was the original weight forward Spey line, developed for use on longer two-handed rods by anglers who preferred a long belly line for mend control and full sweep Spey casting.

The new Delta Spey II takes it several steps further, keeping all the attributes of the original and upgrading with newer design features and materials, thanks to work from Dec Hogan and Tim Rajeff.

A longer, more traditional bellied line that exudes smooth casting strokes and graceful full-length casts, the Delta Spey II is said to be a superbly balanced line across the full range of available sizes.

It also features a dual colour for instant head recognition and a slightly stiffer material in the running line for less tangling and ‘supreme’ shoot ability. It retails at $89.99 (US).

For those who have been searching for a longer Spey head, the company has developed the Airflo Delta Spey II Shooting Head. It says: “Loop it onto the Ridge Running Line and feel the grace and smoothness of casting a long bellied fly line without changing spools.

“With the introduction of this revised taper we felt it was time to make the Delta Spey II available in a shooting head configuration. Employing Airflo’s industry-leading super strong loops there is no better long bellied shooting head available.”

It retails at $59.99 (US).
