It seems that with all the new rods lines and just hype that new fisherman and journeyman alike are lost in the whole=DO I LOOK GOOD AND CAN I CAST AS FAR AS MIKE K. AND LAND FISH LIKE DEC H. Spey casting and fishing over the years feels more like a runway model than fishing. The craze of a short rod and a Skagit/Scandi line, a Switchy.... You know the old dogs can still out fish us with a simple fly and a simple setup. Sales has come a long way hasn't it. Yeah I know those rods and lines have a good place on the river. So if you fished the two side by side old skool and new skool a fish will grab your flask if they are in the mood. Just me bitchen about the hype. Thanks for reading, you know one day all that crap you sold or tossed will be back in retro style.
