It's almost time...

Sorry I haven't been posting much. I'm leaving on Wed AM for the Salmon River in NY to chase after Steelhead, Browns, and what's left of the salmon. I've been spending my nights intensively trying to fill the fly boxes. I've been knocking out bunnies, buggers, leeches, stoneflies, and eggs like a madman.

I'm actually really excited because I just picked up an 8 weight 11'6 LSI switch rod with a Lamson Reel.

With the Rio switch line, it came out to $420 after all the discounts. Ouch. I'm pretty psyched to try it out for the first time although I'm guessing I'll spend the first few days just getting the hang of a two-handed cast.

I'll try to get a blog post in tomorrow night before I go showing some of the new bugs, and maybe some pics from our weekend trout hunt, but for now, here's an amazing video I picked up off the Drake's website.


  1. I feel you as I have struggled lately with posts as well. Great video btw.

  2. Switch is perfect for SR...It takes some getting used too. Remember, your bottom does the snapping and make sure you have a good anchor. Try to find some open water (2A area).
