Welcome back. I, too, just recently returned, in a manner of speaking, after a long hiatus and fishing the single hander in lakes, a la Brian Chan. I found a lot of info on YouTube about spey casting and the OPST lines, and decided to give a light two hander a swing and the rest is history. Yeah, right, as all I proved is my casting with the two hander had become history.
In any case, again, welcome Mr. AJSmith.
Jet sleds/boats destroy redds in the spawning grounds with their turbulent jet wash, scouring the bottom and further burying some of the eggs while ejecting the rest into the stream flow to be eaten. To protect fish, these boats must be restricted from the spawning grounds.
