NADA! Four times the ten year high in returns, highest fish counts on record, great weather, and I am stranded!
I must admit I first felt a little guilty about taking my vacation fishing to indulge as such when others are so distraught and busy digging bodies and hopefully survivors out of the rubble.
I looked into it and authorities say they are overwhelmed with people who want to help and have asked people to stop just showing up on the scene until they requests for specific skills are made to the public.
I do agree that we should not let terrorism change our way of life, but somehow it would give me more pleasure to see the relief in a survivors eyes than even to see my beloved pacific northwest salmon and steelhead this year.
As someone said if I do it in deference to the attackers and in honor of all the anglers who met a grim and unjust end, then I will feel good about it. God knows if I were in the rubble I would hope fellow Americans would fish their brains out, cause that IS freedom to me.
I hope to be there as soon as things open up. Thanks for asking buddy!

I rarely ever overhand cast.. I am sure it will overhand cast very nicely deoending on who casts it... I am a firm believer that it is the casters ability not the action of the rod that makes a rod cast well overhead.. it is a 13 foot 9 wt... I do have a little trouble with certain casts with this rod but it is me not the rod. I can spiral roll it from either side of the river and can single spey it well but with the slower casts like the snap t and double spey it tends to unload before you can fire if your timing isn't dead on.
hey Juro how is your trip out west going??? did you get out here before the airlines shut down???

I've got the 10150-4, love it for the Skagit, etc.
Is the T&T a 13 foot 9'er? You say quick, how does it do overhand casting vs. Spey casting (meaning both?)

2 spey rods for sale
I have a well used Sage 10150-4 a few nicks and scratches
this rod is 4 years old and has been fished 300? days how about 300 dollars???
I also have a T&T 1309 This is a sweet rod a bit quicker than the sage well actually a lot quicker. It is a very powerful but light rod and has landed steelhead to 17 lbs.
umm it is in similar condition to the sage. 2 guides have been hastilly rewrapped. this is a great dry line rod and handles lighter tips well. say 350 for this rod.
Both rods come with tubes and socks and I think i have both warentee cards
