The giant Salmonflies of the Western mountains are legendary for their proclivity to elicit consistent dry-fly action and ferocious strikes.
Spring olives can't be far away.
Looks like a Payne style grip and sliding band reel seat. Is it a Payne rod?
That's very classy. Nothing like a beautiful fish on a beautiful bamboo.
Caught fish on olives yesterday.
You guys are killin' me. We just had 6' snow; wind chill today around 10; tomorrow expected to be lower....
Hahaha well, that makes me think of putting lipstick on a pig. I've never been accused of being classy that's for sure. But I do like fishing rods with a soul.And that rod is a nicely finished one for sure.
Well, load up the vehicle, stop in Detroit to pick up the Dutchman and come visit. See what Life is like here in the tropics...we like to fish. I would expect to see Hennies by the third or fourth week of this month.
