    Ard, useful information! Planning to visit your lovely state and would love to use your services! Just in the process of saving for my bucket list trip.
    Have a great year of fishing!

    I have a feeling that the 19 pound fish landed on that light tackle has a bit more to do with the angler than the angle and tackle.

    I can't wait to fish with you someday.

    I have had the toughest time landing a steelhead on a 5wt

    All the times I've hooked up on a 5 have been... well embarrassing

    A great post thanks for rehashing

    Ard,

    Would you mind providing some insight on your preference for 9' in a 7 wt, as opposed to a 10'? Or is that just how it worked out and not an intentional preference?

    If I buy any more in 7 weight they will be ten foot if they are single hand rods. Actually I have been using an 11'6" Hardy Swift this year in 7 weight and don't think I'll use a 10' single hander at all. The Switch / Spey will do it all as long as you have some room to cast it.

    Anywhere can be the land of great expectations, broken dreams, or paradise found, it's all up to you.
