You don't have to go far to find migratory browns. While the fish I found are not as large as what you find in Patagonia or the Great Lakes tribs they are powerful little fish that far out fight their stream bound relatives. These things were thick and angry. The scenery wasn't bad either. Enjoy! I'd also like to give a big shot out to Simms for their guide jacket. It kept we dry and comfortable throughout the ore hurricane weather. I fished a 7 ft 5 wt fenwick glass rod. Nothing moves line in small stream situations like these rods. Glass just loads so much beter than today's mega fast rods. Most of my casts were of the roll variety. Change of direction/sustained anchor casts are your friend. I used a short chunky leader terminating in 4 x flouro and a super flashy micro bugger. Rock on!
Is it true? Itinerant Angler Podcast vs Fiberglass Manifesto? It sounds like some sort of dub step podcast remix.
I picked up 3 Fenwick glass rods. I am really looking forward to putting them to work. They are models FF79, an 8 ft 6 wt, FF706, a 7 ft 6 wt and FF 9010, a 9 ft 10wt with a detachable lower grip. I think the 7 fter is going to be the most useful. I really want to try out some various weight forward and dt lines on the shorter rods. I am also looking forward to trying out some of my skagit set ups on the big rod. I am hoping that it will be like some sort of mini low budget Fiberhammer. I am all ears if anyone out there has any advice or info on any of these rods. I will put up reviews and pix later on.
I would like to give a shot Cameron Mortenson over at http://thefiberglassmanifesto.blogspot.com/ for getting interested in glass. I would also like to thank who ever put up this wiki http://fiberglass-fly-rods.pbworks.com/w/page/5182977/Fenwick for providing some info on Fenwick rods.
