    Well, there's that, too. Those steelies had better watch out though, for serious.

    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.
