Flies? Rigging? Technique?
Flies? Matt told us egg patterns. Rigging? Now his leader etc appears pretty straight forward for Erie steelheaders, but you should be asking for a review on that Gatti rod! Made in Italy, but probably wrapped at home...:)
I'm not one to enjoy throwing a lot of weight around, no, not much of a chuck-and-ducker.
Besides the fact that, in my humble opinion, standing out in cold, wet weather casting like a zombie SUCKS...
I think I'm pretty sure that we could walk Matt down to the Au Sable there below Foote Damn and not change anything in terms of his tackle and he would catch fish.
It's a good thing I like you otherwise I'd be telling you to "go figure it out for yourself!
