As for right now, well, I have been having a great January! No, not catching tons of steelhead, but finding enough really nice ones, and tons of water all to ourselves.
That is what January should be, and after a poor hatchery run its nice to see native fish numbers more or less what they have been in past years.
I have been getting old school more and more and have been going back to swinging from the boat with one handers, I think I will do a post just on that….
Its a super fun way to hook some fish, but also see fish interact with your fly even if they don’t end up eating it.
Hey, so I REALLY want to make some extra room in my fishing shed, and am getting more serious about selling some stuff.
This morning I pulled out a Beulah 10’6″ classic switch in a 6/7 weight, its a nice, light switch rod, I would use it as a summer run rod primarily, or even a trout spey.
It has a Dan Bailys reel and a scandie line on it, the line feels a little long to me, I would probably cut a little off or replace it with something shorter.
No case, unmatched rod sock, $100.00
I also pulled out a Scott E2 9 and a half foot 5 weight. The E2 was an incredibly under appreciated rod. I am keeping 4 of them.
This one is a nice, longer all around trout rod, that would also make a nice Euro Nymph set up.
No case, unmatched sock, $75.00
Lastly for today, the venerable Echo Ion 10 ft 8 weight. “the Volksrodden” (or peoples rod in english)
A work horse one hander, I own many, perhaps one more than I need.
This is an older model, the kind of gray color, I think I have the tube for it.
Or get them all in one box for $150.00
Thats right, I am so lazy, and so dislike driving to town to mail things, that I will put all these rods in one box and ship them to you for $150 (plus shipping).
