Headed out to the Tully this morning with Mike M., he wanted to brush up on his Indicator nymph fishing. Mike currently is fishing 8.5′ and 9′ rods, I broke out a pair of 10′ 4#s for the trip. I believe the 10′ rods are the way to go on the bigger streams and when you are dealing with windy condition. It also makes Mending so much smoother.
Mike hit the water running, he landed a fish on his first cast and was able to put another 25 in the net by the time we finished up. Mike is very proficient with a fly rod, dealing with 20+ mph wind gusts all morning would have made for a long morning for most guys, Not Mike!
Great Job Bud!
