Streamers and speys on the swing are always better than eggs and nymphs on the bounce. Two hands on a rod are always better than one. Make the leap, you'll never look back.
A buddy and I turned a few fish the other day in some cold water also. Really cool part of it was, when we were rigging up a certain guide/author pulled his jet into the run right in front of us with two sports and the C&D gear. They moved on after 10min or so of nothing but zebra mussels. They weren't even out of sight and my buddy jumped a 10lb male on a black and purple spey mid swing, the above mentioned guide slowed the boat and watched, I loved it. Even cooler, it was my buddies first day on the water swinging with a two hander ever.
I think I have created a monster.
