Into the Light
After years of lurking--finally pulled the trigger on joining.
I picked up my first two hand rod some years ago (sage VT2), paired with a windcutter II line that I generally flailed around the OP and Salmon unsuccessfully.
Flash forward several years and I found myself the proud owner of an Echo Classic 5wt Switch Rod--the light bulb turned on.
I have been flyfishing since I was a young gun and have (for better/worse) been a par of all the major trends of the past two decades. For me the two hand rod and specifically trout spey is a long return to my earliest days of fly fishing-- swinging soft hackles, skittering caddis about, and rediscovering the river.
Speypages has helped me out so much with line/rod pairings and background info. Hopefully, I can return the favor.
