I tied up a big dark fly with some schlappen, buck tail, peacock hurl, a bunch of flash, big eyes and a clipped spun dear hair head. It worked.
Reports are still coming out but it look like an oversized truck hit a bridge over the Skagit River causing the bridge to collapse. Check out this story here. I wonder how this will affect the steelhead.
Take a look at the rio line recs for 2013. They list a skagit of 225 for a certain rod yet they do not list a line weight this light in their specifications. I hear the 275 is too heavy for the new redington prospector 4 wt switch. Does this head exist, is this a typo or is rio suggesting we break out arts and crafts time to get the right head?
Next step is reviewing how to handle fish. Rob got this. Ice peanut on a chernoble ant of all things. It's not the first striper I've seen fall to this most versatile of patterns.
Fly tying, fly fishing and all aspects of fly culture.
