ROARINGRIVER DREDGER SPEY RODS (SKAGIT STYLE)
Line: 8 - 9
This is the "go to" rod to cover northwest steelhead under a wide range of river conditions, lines and flies. Rod action is moderate with a positive feel, allowing the angler to use a bit more authority lifting heavier sinking lines with heavily weighted flies, resetting the anchor, then delivering a long cast. Expect effortless 50 to 90 feet casts, with short belly head and running monofilament. This rod is at home on larger western rivers where continuous longer casts are needed to cover the run and battle big fish when they decide to nail your fly. It is a must rod for trips to the Dean, Babine, Kispiox rivers. Wind on the Rio
Grande, Argentina, what wind?
