How am I doing so far

I am going to be fishing for larger trout on the Bow river in Calgary Alberta Ave 20" no kidding
This is my set up so far

Echo SR 10'6" 4 wt

Piscifun Crest 7/8

Scientific Anglers 30lb Dacron

Running Line
Berkley Trilene Big Game 30lb

AirFlo Scout 300gr

Rio Light Mow 12.5 T8

How am I doing so far and what goes on the end of the Mow Tip?
I have 2x to 7x fluorocarbon.

Your setup looks pretty good. I fish the bow regularly on the swing I like a 5wt switch or Spey personally. I think the 5/5 mow tip is your best bet with 5ft if 8-10 lbs mono or floro to the fly.

As far as fishing the traditional swing works well but donít be afraid to strip the fly. And always let your fly hang at the end of your swing. You will be amazed at what can happen.

Think about wet flies.

Blue sky's clear water life is good

I have a 5/5 T8 also.
I have a Loomis Metolius 5/6 also.
I fish wet flies and nymphs on the swing almost always.
I live in Black Diamond.
Would you be interested in teaching me to cast properly?
Will compensate you that is for sure.
