Kerry, No. The green Lund with ancient Evenrude jet. What were you driving? The wind played havoc with my attempt to cast and fish the line I prefer. I could, and did, use my heavier rod with a Skagit type head and just throw the line out there. But I'd prefer grace over brute force, which ain't easily attainable cuz I'm not an accomplished spey caster. I found myself wishing I'd brought my single handed rod, because even with the wind, I can make the line do pretty much as I wish. But if I bring the one-hand rod, I won't improve my two-hand casting. Ah, the dilema. Sincerely, Salmo g.
