Belated Sekiu Report

I fished Sekiu last week with a couple of good freinds. The coho was fishing was terribly slow, however, we did manage to tie into some rod corking, drag testing big mackerel that provided a great sport...especially considering the coho fishing was sooooo slow. We couldn't even buy a fish bucktailing.

An observation with a question. For the first time, I had the oppurtunity to fish a Rio Deep 7 alongside a sinktip with an intermediate running line (new Cortland 555 QD 350 gr 30' tip). I have fished both (and had decent luck with both) but I have never had the oppurtunity to fish each side by side for a couple of days.

The Deep 7s, hands down, out fished my 555 QD eventhough we are all fishing similar flies. I think if I went to a 450 or 550 I could of matched the Deep 7's success but the Deep 7 is such a more pleasureable line to cast and fish. Any thoughts?
