So I have been swinging a 9' 8wt with the Scandi Versitip system on the Sandy River in Oregon since early January. I have yet to hook up with anything but am still just figuring out how all of this works. I can't say I am not a little frustrated, however. I have been out at least 10 times, maybe 15, and have yet to get a bite, let alone a bite to eat. I am starting to understand why so many people prefer a two-handed rod to a single, especially when throwing heavier streamers, as I am. So I am starting to wonder if "switching" things up might be a good idea, but this being my first season, I hardly want to make a big change just as the water conditions do the same. If you guys are having any success out there, I would love to know what equipment, including line, you are using. And will you be using the same this Spring & Summer? I don't mind making a good investment, but I do want to avoid another 20 trips to the hole with nothing to show for it. "You may say I'm a dreamer..." Help a brother out?
