    This Saturday, Aaron Reimer's "Day on the River" will feature the Orvis Helios two-handed rods. We will have all the 11-foot switch rods, weights 5-10; and 13-15' spey rods, weights 7-10. All the switches will be lined with the new Orvis switch lines and be ready to cast single overhead and spey. We will also have the first of the new $400 Access switch rods lined and ready for test flights.

    9AM to whenever. Under the Fall City bridge.

    Should be a fun day. Come see what it's like to cast the world's lightest two-handed rods.

    Since you are at the mouth of the Raging and a deep slot on the other side you might as well tie on a fly and swing through it. Winter fish are in the upper river.

    Think the flow will be cleared up by then? After this week's weather it might be just a little murky

    Time to learn how to cast up to your armpits with no backcast room.

    Leland, it was my first introduction to switch rods. Thank you. Wish I could have stayed longer, but my son (on crutches) wasn't dressed for the outing so we took off early.

    Good to see you guys. Glad you had a chance to go through the rod quiver. A couple guys have already taken advantage of the free spey reel deal.

    And an 11 foot high tide around 11AM will make things interesting.

    Leland.
