Re: A switch outfit for trout?
If you werent fishing such big water, I'd recommend the Echo 4 wt SR. I love mine. I got it mostly for swinging wets for trout, but it will handily fish dries or nymphs.My biggest fish on it si far is a 20" summer steelhead. I like my SR so much, I'm planning to buy one of the Echo full size double handers - I just have to figure out if I want the Tim Rajeff model, or the Dec Hogan.
FWIW, I'm fishing smaller coastal rivers mostly with this outfit - using 40-70' casts. I'm using a #6 Airflo line (as recommended in the Echo catalog) with it.
since I was 3. Have you hugged a fish today?
