I just read a post from Pocono that brought this post I made back to my memory. Things have a way of getting buried in the thousands of threads on the board so I'm posting it here in case you naver ran across it. I'll find a picture of the rod and edit it in soon.

*On a Thursday evening in late June of 2010 I made a phone call to a man who runs a barge business on the rivers here in the MatSu Valley. I hadn't heard from him for awhile and with this being the busy season I figured...

On Wednesday the 13th of July I took a ride on my favorite river looking for some sockeye salmon. I knew there would be some chum in and maybe even a few late kings that might take a fly so with a beautiful sunny day coming about I was on the water at 10:00 AM. I knew where I was headed because the fish take the same route every year and seem to hold in the same spots. From where I launched I stayed on the shallow side of the river and traveled slow watching carefully the deeper channel on my left...

I havent had a chance to get line wet in almost 3 weeks, not becasue of the weather but my days off have not been on my normal day so it is messing with my fishing. Looks like itll be in the 80s this week so I hope i can get out one morning to catch a few.

Posted 06-30-2011 at 08:14 PM by mbphotos54

well, I had a good session in the yard tonight, trying to use the tips from here. I was able to haul and shoot out all but 6 or 7 wraps of flyline on the reel, and was able to repeat the cast several times, my overhead casting isnt hitting the ground or knoting , atleast tonight. Ill get the video cam again next week to post again on my progress. I hope to get back on the creek next week. or pond.
