Sea-Run Cutthroat Trout rules.

I need to take some gear-fishing-for-SRC notes. I have shoulder surgery at the end of the month and may need to get dirty with a spinning rod for my fishing fix this spring. Should be fly-rod ready for the summer/fall salmon season....if we get one.
When I fish with my brother-in-law (maybe 1-2 times per year, from his boat), I started bringing a light spinning rod and some castmaster lures. I replace the treble hook for a single barbless and seems to work pretty well for him. I'd say i still catch more fish on the fly (probably 2-1) but that may just be that we really only have 2 colors of lures for him and I can swap out flies to mach whatever is working etc... still, he seems to average larger fish then I do.

Maybe spinner with fly dropper ;)

Nothing dirty about it man, looking at a lite weight spinning rod to reach high tide fish just out of reach when the switch wont cut it. Also need to dial it in so I can take non fly fishing family out once in a while.

Oh I know, I was just messing around. However, I gear fish so infrequently it feels weird when I do.

You can get a couple casting bubbles then just use your flies behind it. That way you can just take your fly box and no need to buy lures.
I actually am really into this idea for my bro and father in law who just don't seem that interested in learning yo cast well enough to be effective.
