    Good stuff, Pan.

    But if I add all these specialty tools to an already stuffed vest, I'll need to budget for a ghille to help carry it all.

    In all seriousness though, I can see them being as or even more effective than the current state of the art heads/tips/M_W tips in certain circumstances.

    On your home waters late in winter when fish hold hard to the bottom and move only reluctantly due to low water temperature, they could make the difference.

    Just for the sake of discussion, which one would you be tossing at the gut of the Casino run?

    I hate the casino run. It is one of the runs everyone catches fish out of but me. The other is the gravel pit. I just quit fishing them altogether.

    On his home water in late Winter if he's so inclined he can use the floater if he knows where to fish. The water temp at Peck has been around 39 degrees for weeks. It will be warmer in the Casino run.


    For whoever is selling these new Guideline heads I hope they sell better then Rio's multi density scandi heads which didn't sell that great at all.

    Yeah that gravel pile is to hard for you northern boys. You and Adam should stay down in the "stink hole".

    Swings too fast for my liking. I like the bottom of it when it moves inside and peters out. Actually I like it a lot more at early season high water levels, but there aren't many fish that high. I should mention my favorite run on the entire river is only a 200 feet away and no one fishes it, which is why I don't really care :)

    William, I'm not talking about what you think I'm talking about. More like a couple thousand feet. Right, no secrets, that is unless you stalk William's rig.

    That's impossible, because its a secret and I'm the only one who knows about it.
