Talking You're two for two on your patterns.

Would like to see what the folks who fish the Descutes think about this combo. Gather purple is a main-stay on that particular river.

On the Rogue, save for our 'October "B run" of summer steelhead purple has been far less than a go-getter. In context, the Rogue has two runs of summer runs; the first/largest are our 'normal fish' which will run 3-5 pounds. The "B run," my own term here, are much larger fish .... winter run size. These puppies hammer purple, and of all things??, robin's egg blue flys.
