Two-handed rods in the surf

TFO Advisory Staff member Nick Curcione, an innovator in two-handed rods, recently did a write up for RIO products on his specialty, two-handed rods in the surf. Here is an excerpt of that piece. For more on this technique and some fun ways to utilized two-handed casting, check out the RIO blog at: 

“The initial motivation for using a double-handed fly rod for fishing off the beach was based on my years of experience surf fishing with conventional and spinning outfits. The added length of these 11 and 12-foot rods made it relatively easy to fire off long distance casts beyond the breakers and I reasoned that the same would be true in the case of two-handed fly rods.” 

For more on two-handed rods, and fishing in general, head over to the RIO blog:
