I had another great striper trip. I even stuck one myself.

I took one of my new sticks out. I used a 400gr Skagit Max short, 10 ft of t10 and 35 lb rio slick shooter. I hooked into a submarine headed to Europe. Home water and two Handers rule.
I really enjoyed this move by Todd Moen.The movie featured fishing buddies Jakob Lund and Jeff Hickman fishing for steelhead in some epic pacific north west scenery. The fushing action is cool but what really struck me was narration about fishing with a competent partner. I thought of my fishing buddies and some of the gnarly trips we have taken. Watch the video here.
I am super stoked to see these rods coming into my local fly shop. I've been drooling over them for some time. Be sure to follow this blog and A Marblehed Flyfisher for upcoming info.
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.
click on the image from sage to view a great reviews of all of the upcoming Sage One Switch and Spey rods. i ahve also included soem vids from youtube. I can't wait to get my hands on "ONE" of these rods. I think I am going to go with the 4 wt switch.
