    No sir. However, it was a beautiful day on the river and it seemed that Bass Turds and I had it all to ourselves. Also, due to the fact that Mr, Turds let me cast his spey rod I am now in the market for one.

    It may be a while unless I can find a stupid low price on a good quality spey rod.

    Dan, I hope that this message I post, wakes you up. You get angry, mean, hateful, and caucasian. You find the motivation, you go to the water, and catch a steelhead. Because I AM SICK OF THIS MOTHERFUCKING SKUNK, IN THIS MOTHERFUCKING THREAD!!!!

    No steelies caught today. Was out there early this morning. I was out there for about 2 hours. The whole entire time I saw another guy spey casting using a snap T, and here I was trying my best to get 80 ft out there with my single hander. I literally shouting out " fuck this", I went home, got cleaned up, headed out, and came home with a new spey setup. This should help me out greatly.

    Echo Classic spey 12' 9" 7 wt
    Echo Ion Reel
    Rio Skagit flight head 525 grns
    Rio shooting line .030
    10ft T-11 sink tip.
