I just purchased a Redington RS3 14' spey rod, a Lamson Velocity IV reel, and Rio Skagit Line. I went on a float yesterday, Skykomish, with Clark from Puget Sound Fly Co. and several other fine gentlemen. I had a great time learning the differant spey casts. I certainlty going to implement some of them with the single hand rod in the future. The water was in great condition. The only thing missing were the fish. Oh well, it was a beautiful day just the same. Attached are some variations of the same fly I hope will be effective. As well as the start of my steelhead selection, some tied by me and some purchased.
