Once in a while you get shown the light ...


Fishing pretty much non-existent for me this weekend, and around 2pm on Sunday my wife told me to go out and find some water before I drove everyone crazy.

Hit the Charles River from shore, caught nothing, but finally figured out the single hand spey - so exciting! The trick was the right rod and being forced into it. Where I was fishing there was literally no room to back cast, and my roll casts were OK, but I thought hey, why not try a single hand spey - and it worked! The key - using an old 7 weight Silaflex fiberglass rod that I bought for 25ish of fleabay - deep load, take your time, and the line flies! Best day of non-catching I've had in years!
