RE:Springers on a 3 weight?

'tip, you're S*I*C*K.

I can see you now, gazing forlornly after the departed Springer with the broken pieces of your trout rod dangling in your hands <g> Seriously, I wouldn't do a lot of nymphing with stoneflies if those Springers are in the river!

Then again, there are New Yorkers fishing the Salmon River in Pulaski for Chinook using 6 and 8lb tippet. That might be the perfect challenge - which will break first, your tippet or your rod???

Have fun with the Landlocked Steelhead!
