About the Oracle Spey Double Handed Fly Rod
The Oracle Spey Double Handed Fly Rod from Shakespeare has nothing more than quality, performance and value to offer from its traditional action in the extensive Oracle range. This through action offers curve from butt, middle, through to tip. The Spey range includes 4 lengths and respective weights.
If you are looking to upgrade from an older heavy salmon rod without looking to spend a good deal of money and without being completely out of your comfort zone due to a differing action then this is the rod for you. Despite the name Spey, we recommend shooting-heads for these rods. We would be happy to help recommend lines for you, please contact us for experience driven support.
Like the rest of the rods in the family, the Oracle Spey features a beautiful subtle black and green shimmer throughout the blanks, and subtle gold highlights. Featured above the handle is a practical hook keeper ring avoiding any damage of the cork.
The Shakespeare Oracle Spey Fly Rod has a high quality, double handed AAA cork handle with a double locking reel seat for extra security. The rod is supplied with it's very own black cordura tube with a zipped top and lined divider to separate each section of your rod. The tube also includes an adjustable carry strap.

About the Angling Active All Round Spey Line
The All Round Spey has a head length of 52ft, with a 10ft rear taper that gives flexibility like few other lines, allowing you to cast both short and longer distances comfortably with one line. These lines are as happy casting 48ft of the head, as they are with the full 60ft, giving you all round performance and the ability to vary your casting length to suit the conditions and situation. The advanced front taper has been designed to turn over tapered leaders and large flies with ease.
Our lines are marked with a black sweet spot indicator where the user should hold the line for the optimum short cast. When extra distance is needed, simply release more line to take advantage of the full length head. In short these lines are great for beginners and advanced casters alike. The All Round Spey Lines are great value for money, to keep costs down we have presented them in no-frills packaging meaning we can pass on the savings gained by not boxing these lines in expensive packaging. This allows our team to offer you the best value for money Spey line on the market that’s unlikely to be beaten on price.
