First purchase was the Clarus 13' worked well for the heavier leaders and landing salmon, but
As I went to lighter leads, 8,6, and especially 4lb, I ended up losing the fish on break offs..
Purchased the 13'6" guide select, reasonable entry level price and rod, and it was night and day..
Completely different feel and my landing ratio skyrocketed:)
I haven't had the chance to try higher end rods, but one day I'm sure I will..
Hope my 2 cents helped a little
We haven't seen this much snowfall in a long while
The fishing pressure will be high I'm sure,but
If it does turn out to be a "fish" year,
that should help the spawn rate,
which in turn would lead to a better future:)
I must say the "fall run" was fantastic. It was my first season of 'steelheading', thanks to a co-worker who took me out once, and I havent looked back.
The first few ventures were mostly me tangling up, and losing fish, whilst watching more seasoned anglers bring in some beautiful fish..I definitely enjoyed myself
each and every outting, and cant wait until the creeks and rivers thaw again.
