After dapping, the swing is the original way to present a fly to fish. The dead-drift came much later. With the legendary rivers of the Lost Coast just north of us here in the Bay Area, we're well acquainted with the zen-like pleasures of swinging for sea-run cutts, steelhead and salmon. As a compact Spey rod, the Red Truck Premium 7110-4 Switch provides anglers the power and efficiency of two-handed casting on waters where a full-length Spey rod might be too much.
I love to explore the costal streams, find the waters of the tiny inland creeks and the Californian coast has some secret water to explore. The Red Truck Premium Switch fly rod proved to be an excellent companion for my fishing adventures. The casting is way too easy…. I can cast all kinds of rigs and even heavy intruders to my target. My steelhead creeks turned out to be a perfect fit for this rod. I realized that with this rod, steelheading can be extremely effortless and comfortable for my shoulder. A ‘must try’ for all passionate fishermen out there.
