    Lately, it's been a Snap-T with a big dry, on my switch rod.........

    Fishing is just about fish to me, it's about connections beyond counting.
    The fish and I are connected by more than a line........

    Snake rolls on the spey and super accurate casts with the 3 weight in a tiny creek that would leave you snagged if your were inches off in either direction.

    One of my "best" casts was figuring out this puzzle and making a difficult cast on the first try. Give a try at solving it before looking at the answer.

    Solve the puzzle

    My best or at least most accurate cast was when I was hiking with my buddy on the Norwegian mountains.

    I was trying to figure out what fly to put on and getting ready to start the days fishing when I noticed my friend kneeling by our tent entrance his butt crack shining. I didn't have a fly on my leader so I decided to teach him a lesson.

    After that he wore a belt on his pants.

    Any cast that I feel happy with. Doesn't matter if I don't catch a fish. I am more depressed when I cast badly and catch fish than the other way around.

    I've been fooling around with various single-hand spey casts for a few years now, so my 'favorite' cast is kind of work in progress. Right now I'm finding a lot of uses for either a 'snap-T' cast or a 'snake roll' cast. If I had to pick just one, I guess right now I'd pick the Snake roll, just because it's a lot of fun once you figure it out, allows you to change direction easily, doesn't need any room for a backcast, and finally you can cast either small dries or heavy double-nymph weighted rigs without worrying about getting whacked in the back of the head.

    And it's a lot of fun. Had to mention that twice.

    I read about the snake roll a while ago and that sure is a fun move to do, even if it is meant for two handed rods.

    My favorite overall is fishing a river with a downed tree that I KNOW has bass around behind, with only a tight window to hit to get there. Threading a streamer through a window in the branches to the perfect spot always makes me smile, even if the fish weren’t interested. Nothing sweeter than watching that loop unroll with only inches to spare.
