Sinktip my friend, does this mean that I will be seeing you fishing with a 4 wt "Midge Rod" of 7' or less on the Stilly this summer as Walt Johnson, Mike Kinney, and Bob Arnold did with short bamboo "Midge Rods" in days past instead of with your 1307 T&T? I know Russ Miller fishes an 8'6" 5 wt on the Stilly after the water drops to its summer low in August.
A 7 wt will easily cover the water on the Stilly. As Nooksack Mac has mentioned, the NF Stilly has a storied history in the annuls of fly fishing for summer steelhead. Most if not all of the pioneers and most of the luminaries of steelhead fly fishing in WA state have fished the Stilly. In fact, several very effective summer steelhead fly patterns were developed on the Stilly by Enos Bradner, George McLeod, Bob Arnold, Wes Drain, Ralph Wahl, Walt Johnson, and Mike Kinney among others.
Although the runs are a ghost of what they used to be, it is still a beautiful river and one I gladly call my home river in summer. Just don't expect to have a grab or hook-up each time you fish.
