About Us

 

Nextcast Lines are the brainchild of Simon Hsieh, two time champion of the prestigious Spey O Rama casting competition held yearly at the Golden Gate Angling and Casting Club in San Francisco. Simon has been designing and developing spey lines for many years. The culmination of his hard work came to fruition in 2006 with the introduction of the popular NextCast95 and WinterAuthority55 lines, and followed with a complete FallFavorite series and WinterAuthority series. The hallmark of Simon's lines are; cast-ability, positive tracking and very positive turnover even in demending conditions. We feel these lines are unique in the industry and hope that you will also find them so.


Since the earliest days of Nextcast, we have grown to include a broadly skilled group of Team Members, Pro Staffers, and Representatives worldwide. We have come together with one passion: SPEY. We have worked together to design lines, talk fishing, share casting techniques, and keep a relaxed and friendly attitude towards all things spey. Together, we have designed and tested the current WorldChamp15 that took top honors at the casting ponds in Spey-O-Rama 2013. We have designed the SalarFinder with input from the best Scandinavian anglers. We are Architects, fishing guides, casting instructors, school teachers, workers, pilots, 15' - 191' World Record Holders, Spey bums, two time Spey-O-Rama Champions ... and working together, we bring a diversity of perspectives to attain perfection in spey line design. That is what Nextcast all about.

As you may notice already, Nextcast products have an unique style/characteristic in casting and fishing. Our goal is to develop products not only to meet the demands of tough fishing conditions, but also to give a bit of extra feel in hand. This feel is the soul of Nextcast. 


May you find them, 'Fine and Far Off'.
