Fly fishing for winter steelhead
- If you're crazy enough to chase winter run steelhead, then it won't be news to you that it ain't easy. Harsh weather conditions, constantly changing water flows and a fish that's known for being tight lipped makes for a low fish-count game. That being said, when you do hook into a slab of winter chrome, you'll know instantly that it's all worth the effort.
- To be more efficient in the hooking and catching department, you need the right fly rod. Today, that means getting friendly with Scott's new T3H 12'8" #7 two-handed fly rod. If you're only getting one rod, this is the one to get. It's still light enough to enjoy a full day of casting and the inevitable smaller fish, yet it retains the power to cast today's heavier Skagit heads and sink tips, as well as flies the size of spark plugs. If you are lucky (skilled) enough to tie into steelhead the size of a truck bumper, this rod still has the power to turn your fish out of heavy winter current and toward the bank. As a Scott fly rod, of course it's built with only the best in components and material. It's also artfully finished with tight thread wrappings and the cleanest epoxy work in the business. Enjoy
