Probably right

However that is you. Remember that most people aren't the angler that you are ( I am guessing ) I have to make allowances for my clients and their abilities. Having said that, I know that a streamer that imitates a salmon smolt fished down and across any variety of ways can attract an awful lot of attention in Alaskan rivers at the right time, and very aggressive strikes too, from very big fish. I am talking about the kind of strikes that snap 8 - 10 pound tippet right away!!:eyecrazy: I'll have a lot of 12 pound flourocarbon specifically for that purpose this year. Stream bred rainbows (not steelhead) as long as your arm! Vicious fishes...I am dreaming of them right now......................
