On a recent visit to Tacoma, Steve Saville introduce me to switch rods and associated casting. Later we went to Cabela's and I bought an 11' TFO Deer Creek Series switch rod and then we drove to The Puget Sound Fly Company where I met Anil and bought a Rio Outbound intermediate line. After several return visits to TPSFC I bought some SRC and salmon fly tying material and another Rio Outbound line, this time a floater. At home I went to the North Fork Angler' fly shop in Cody WY and the owner Tim Wade told me that he was giving group spey casting lessons in April. When talking to My father-in-law about which boat I should bring to Tacoma, He said that he would remove the 4 sale sign from his boat and motor an I could use it when visiting Tacoma. Thanks to a lot of nice and generous people and to those of you on this forum who have answered my questions, I'll be learning a new to me style of casting and fishing.
