- Decided to try out my six weight -- just what was the Sage rod I got -- could it be 15 years ago -- like? It casts fine - it's pretty stiff compared to the 4 weight and the 5 weight -- but it's a six!! Maybe i'll update that one as well, but not just now. Need to let the bank account settle back from the recent purchase of the Winston 4 wt.
Saturday I figured it was time to get a fancy rod - always have had the middle or basic ones - if not now - when? So now is the time. Got a new 4 weight for when the water gets low... it is pretty sweet - now I have to plot how to get back out ASAP.
On the dries I've tried to add some high-res yarn because I just can't see as well as I used to... sigh. Still I made some size 18's … so we'll see if I can get them on the line while I am actually on the water - and snag them on something and lose 'em. Now --- time to try them out and see if they work! I hope to be out ASAP - why are there so many tasks other than fishing?
I first started fly fishing in NY state sometime around 1985 ... mostly I fish in the Snoqualmie Forks -- very small trout but very fun to catch and release. I'm pretty much a home river person - that being said I've had a few fishing adventures. Currently I'm trying some new places on both sides of the Cascades.
