OPST Commando Head

  • Why We Like One-Handed Spey Casting… #opstcommandohead #speycasting

    By / April 8, 2018 / Fishing

    Video that shows the fly rod/reels we used, and what led us to using a Switch Rod and a Trout Rod for most of our fly fishing trips now. We learned about spey lines and Switch Rods after injuring a shoulder. Normal overhead and side casts was painful. We were doomed to waiting for the… [read more]

    Still working on a one-handed spey casting video… but did come across this one! Liking this video from Ed Ward at OPST! Going to use it next chance, should make a difference in keeping the mono running line tangle free when casting the OPST Commando Head! Facebook Twitter Google+ LinkedIn

    By / March 26, 2018 / Fishing

    Here is a quick demo of the OPST Commando Head that we use with a 5wt flyrod for one-handed spey casting. Nothing fancy… Switch Cast and a modified “Perry Poke” gets an easy 21 yard cast. Lots of fun casting this rig; even more fun when a fish is on the line!     OPST… [read more]

  • OPST Commando Head on a Short 4wt Fly Rod #flyfishing

    By / February 15, 2018 / Fishing

    Originally planned to “test” the RIO Trout Max shooting head using a short 5′ 3″ 4wt Fly Rod. But, grabbed the wrong reel and ended up using the OPST Commando Head Skajit line instead. Works well on a 9′ 5wt, looks like it works well on the short 4wt Fly Rod, too!   Facebook Twitter… [read more]

    By / October 22, 2017 / Fishing

    Been itching to try the OPST Skagit Commando Head on our mojo fly rod – Redingtion Classic Trout 9′ 5WT. Put an order in at Red’s Fly Shop, now just waiting for the package to arrive. Concept of spey casting one-handed with a short Skagit head appeals to us. Went with the recommended 200 grain… [read more]
