    Steelhead Switch Fishing Outfit:

     



    You string up your switch rod on the tailgate of your pick up, grab your tips, a spool of 12lb mono, and a box of flies and hit the trail. You meander through redwoods until you emerge at you favorite run. Several large boulders make for perfect steelhead holding water. You cast you fly upstream of the first boulder and let it soak. A big upstream mend just as your fly is over the rock and your swing starts. Your confidence is not shaken when you come up empty handed… after all you are swinging for chrome. As the day nears an end you switch it up to indicators and pull a fish out on the last boulder.

    Oregon Steelhead 2/3/2014 2:59 pm This is the best fishing combo I have used to date for steelhead. This Red Truck switch fly fishing rod is great for “everything steelhead,” here in Oregon. The line, the reel, the rod… everything is crafted in such a way that any level of angler could try a hand at steelhead fishing and end up happy with their resulting experience. A total value for money, this is the first time that I have used a Red Truck product. But as I knew that it is Leland who was selling it, I was confident that I would not regret this investment. And that is what happened. Today my trust in Leland has grown stronger and my craving for trying more Red Truck products has increased. Thank you guys for coming up with such a great set of gear.
    Very refined set up 10/4/2013 10:04 am This set up feels very nice in my hand while casting, the reel pickup and drag feels extremely solid. The combo is so well balanced its just a real pleasure to use. I would highly reccmnmd this outfit for anyone who thinks they are ready to step up to a great setup especially for steelhead or smallies
    Switch Rod 8/6/2013 10:57 am My son-in-law introduced the Red Truck Diesel Switch fly rod to me. I am amazed at the versatility that this fly rod offers to novice as well as experienced fly fishermen. The rod comes with a very strong butt and middle section. The strong and comfortable grip gave me more control and I was able to generate more leverage without much effort. I found roll casting to be much easier because of its additional length. The ferules are sanded and the rod pieces can be perfectly fitted together. I would say that this fly rod has an excellent design, they have commendable versatility and most importantly, they are affordable too!

    Micro Spey 7/17/2013 9:41 am I bought this rod thinking I was going to cast both single and two-handed. Although I certainly can cast this rod with one hand, I find myself pretty much only two hand casting. To me, this rod is my baby spey rod. It's perfect for some of the smaller rivers I fish where casting space is limited. Fished it a lot last season on the Trinity River and it was the perfect rod for the job.
    Spey Rod Anonymous 3/20/2013 10:12 am I am quitting spey rods after using this switch outfit. I can cast just as far with this set up as I could with my 7wt spey rod. This rod cast 450 grains really and has the power to throw big tips and flies. Balance is key in choosing a spey rod set up and the guys at red truck NAILED it!
