Rod no. 11
I just received all the pieces to my 11th rod--my first Spey rod! I always borrow someone else's, but since 30,000 steelhead made it over the Bonneville dam in one day, I figured I better get ready.
I went the economical route and ended up with a great outfit. I got an Echo 2 in a 13'6" 8/9--a rod I've fished with before. I got a Lamson Guru 4 and a Rio VersiTip in 650 grain to line it up. It should be a machine through the fall and winter!
The Lower Lost was windy today so I'm hoping the carp down in Hagermen are more responsive tomorrow!
