Had many 15 to 20 fish days during the glory Skamania runs during the 80's. All on gold/green spinners. Took some on flies, but spinners were my tool of choice.

Yep gold spinners were the ones, don't think I had much luck with silver. Did you ever hear of a CP Swinger ? Don't think they make them any more.

Silver was/is a winter spinner. Silver/pink tape tubing. Hadfish swin 20 to 30' to slam them. That was all in ice water.

Maybe I should buy some spinners from you and pack the spinning rod for those desparation days. These of course would be for my 15 year old son who I want to take steelhead fishing soon. I will make sure no one around me has a digital camera nor knows who I am. Don't want any flicks showing up on the forumn like other members in good standing have been subjected to recently.

If memory serves, RHB would carry both rods (spin and fly) when he went out.

If I have any parts laying around they are yours. Won't take long to build them. They are packed away with my cardinal 4's and cardinal 3's somewhere.

I have summer flies that have been swung over several seasons and brought fish to them reliably but have never been lost to a stone or log, and surface flies that have lasted even longer.

Some of my spey flies seem to have lasted in my box 'too long'. Although they have caught fish I often retire them for a freshly tied version because the hook gets tarnished on the clips or the dressings get tired after a few gnarly bucks eat them.

Did the spinners get snagged up on the bottom and on logs too?

Juro,
Do not encourage these talks of hardware chucking. Give them a warning and remove 1000 posts for talking about catching Steelheads on hardware.:hehe:

Juro,

We would snag at times but the were easy to get back. Think of a bow and arrow, bend your rod into a bow than twang you line a few times. More often than not they would come back I used to uy the parts and build them, so at .40 each losing 1 or 2 a day was no bother. Our rivers (really creeks NW Indiana) are not that big and deep, so you could if you wished wade out and get them.

In reality I did not lose too many due to the bottom, lost more in the jaws of fish than anything else.

WD,

Sometimes mutts are the best dogs of all. Had a samoyed and collie mix that was the best dog I ever had.

Willie,

Sometimes the past comes back to haunt us.

I can say this swinging a spinner is so much like swinging a fly. Thats probably why I am so bloody good..

Which accounts for my results as I spent my misbegotten youth chucking red devils for pike and jitterbugs for bass.

Like to know how Juro keeps his flies. Either he skates 'em across the top or the PNW is so organized, they have someone cleaning the snags off the river bottom before the beginning of each season.

:hehe:

I suspect I fish wet flies a lot like folks fish spinners and spoons!

BTW - beautiful dogs, all three. I miss my fishin' dog Cody but my "pup" (130 pounds or so) keeps us busy. I see the husky pups got a little excited to see you! :hehe:
