Summer steelhead Spey fishing
- Two-handed fly rods have sure
changed from the late 1980's, when they first were introduced to the
USA. Today's two-handed fly rods are shorter in length and lighter in line
rating than yesteryear's big sticks. Take for example, Scott's T3H
12'8" #6 fly rod. It might sound a bit light in rating, but we at
Leland are here to tell you it's the perfect summer run fly rod, even
for big fish in British Columbia. With assistance from contemporary two-handed fly line head systems, this rod can reach out to the far bank and even carry some sizable flies. That being said, the best use for this rod is surface or near surface work with skaters and classic flies on Scandi heads. This Scott fly rod loads smoothly and is well balanced, resulting in very efficient, effortless casts. For us on the west coast, rivers like the Klamath, Rogue, John Day and the Deschutes are reason enough for this rod to exist. If you already own an all-purpose two hander, you might consider adding this one to your collection for the finer work that summer steelheading offers. You won't be disappointed.
