Choosing an OSPT Commando Head for Single Hand Fly Rods

YOU ARE IN THE RIGHT PLACE FOR SINGLE HAND FLY RODS!

You don't need a new or special rod to get into spey casting, your existing SINGLE-HAND rod will work great with a matched OPST set-up.  Use this table if you are matching lines for your single-hand rod - then check out the items below.

Choose your Lazar Line colour & strength, then add the Commando Head and then choose some Tips in the recommended sizes, in floating and/or the sink rates you need (and a wallet if you are buying a few).
