    There are no Steelhead in Alabama, but I would be game for this swap, if it gets off the ground. There are a select few of us that swing for Striped Bass, the premier anadromous fish of the area, and many of the flies are interchangible...

    I am thinking 3-4 weeks, mid-august, just in time for the real action to start heating up.

    I will count you in Sean.
