Masshole Currently in Exile in Rhode Island

Hi All,

Recently took up spey casting for stripers last season and liked it enough to build a stillwater trout spey rig this winter (it comes in really handy when backed up against cattails) Good to see some east coast types here as the sport expands.

When backed up against the cattails, turn 90ļ either way & fish parallel to them once in a while. Think about it. If you were prey, would you hide in open water, or in the cattails? Of course it depends on the bottom structure & the time of day. The big fish may lie in deeper, cooler water, just off a ledge, water offering protection. But when the light starts to fade, it's hunting time for big fish.

I fish because the voices inside my head tell me to.
