Double-handed spey casting rods are an excellent choice for snagging salmon and large river trout.
There is a wide range of actions from moderate to X-fast that give you just the kind of rod performance you'll need. We also have fly rods that are particularly good for the global traveler. They break down into four pieces; some come with their own carrying cases.
