At least it's a river!

There are no rivers left on the OP.

Oh my dear Sparky, that was a wrong answer. OC has recently been seen practicing his doublespey with a single handed rod and I have good intel that he will be swinging a long rod for the upcoming winter/spring season.

Rich may not look much like Daniel Day-Lewis but he could be the last of the Mohicans. (Ok that was not factually accurate as Russell Means played the LOTM and come to think of it, Rich does look like him )

Aw come on Juro, just a good double haul and you can kiss the other bank

Sink, I guess I will go along with the old Jackson Browne album - Hold on, hold out, sooner or latter the single hander will come back, for now I'll enjoy being the novelty act:hehe:

Steep banks covered with brush 20 feet behind. Fierce upriver wind on the strong shoulder. Boily water in front of you; 80 ft 75-80 degree cast required to get the fly to swim through the seam. Type 8 or so @ 15 foot sinktip, large fly. Run is 100 yards long. That's not going to be fun with the single hand stick.

I do fish single-handers all the time in other fisheries, it's just that the two-hander is IMHO a superior tool for river fishing and I love the way learning new casting techniques revives the discovery in steelhead fishing with the fly.

The way I figure it, every day not spent spey casting is another day squandered when you could've learned it better!

Speybum,

Me thinks that some folk done got their geography a might messed up. I was unaware that the Cowlitz was on the OP, unless 'un of course the river was transplanted by a good 'ol earthquake. Seems ta' me that da' Cowlitz is south of the OP and that it flows out of the Cascades into the lower Columbia.

Doublespey and Sean, no wonder the two of you didn't find a fish, you were fishing on the wrong OP.

The Truth Must Come Out!!

I snapped a couple photos of Juro in the process of casting and low and behold, this one came out to look like he was fighting a fish!

Sean ... did you just "Dude" Juro?


Juro:

It was nice to finally meet you at the AFFTA show. Those were some "Saaweeeet..." rods you were demonstrating. Too bad I'm such a crummy spey caster. Next year they need to get the spey pool back. You poor guys were contending with way too many single handers. See you next year.

John

John -

Pleasure was all mine DUDE!

Glad we got to hang out. I hope we can get out on the water one of these days. Maybe you can come on out to striper land or I can get down to White River. Another option would be to go do steelhead in the PNW or salmon in the maritimes or Europe.

Let me know when you're attending a show, next time let's hook up for at least a beer if not a local stream sortie.

Ryan, et. al. -

Yes, it seems my long streak (8 years!) of coming back to my home waters and hooking steelhead has ended, although I did make the connection this May before the Sandy Clave.

I'd either blew my mojo out on Sekiu where I hooked four salmon in about four hours of actual fishing time (on the boat with Neal and Calvin) or it was the fateful mistake of giving Leland my killer summer run fly, which he aptly named for me (the "creeper") after I'd been waffling about it's name for over a decade. All I know is since I gave him that pattern there's nothing but sloppy seconds by the time I arrive

It was a pleasure coming back to my home waters, and my daughter had a wonderful reunion with her childhood buddies.

Maybe next time I can start a new streak!
