I'm in the same situation as you on the South Fork of the Snake in Idaho. I use 4-6 wt switch rods. My setup and fly selection is a little different. But i'm like you in the fly area. Most of my...

I’ll be somewhere around where you camp. I usually camp somewhere around bobcat to Newland. All depends on how the water looks and how many people there are.

I've got the same rod. I've played around with skagit and scandi heads on this rod and it likes the Rage compact 480gr the best. With your lighter head, then adding a tip you increased the weight...

I fish an Echo glass 3wt switch and its great for calm days and small soft hackle flies or muddler patterns. I've caught fish up to 21" and 4#. I would not want to catch any bigger fish than that in...

Most likely you will need some type of poly leader to get a better anchor. I actually like the switch chucker line on my smaller switch rods. But you can totally just attach a leader to the end and...

More fish have succumbed to the egg sucking leech than any other fly. I call it "old reliable". When nothing else works, I tie one on. Although I try to tie mine more civilized and use dubbing loops...

Everybody I know uses floating lines with size 4-8 flies and does well. Tie a few on heavy irons just for the extra weight. I think it's more about presentation than anything. Darker flies seems to...

I have the #2 and the #4 for my 3 and 5wt switch rods. I find it requires a tip or poly leader along with more of an underhand style cast with a tight loop. It also depends on your anchor point. Once...

I needed a longer leader. I put on a 10' intermediate poly leader and that fixed my anchor problem. tight loops from here on out!

That's awesome. I'm glad it's working out for you. I find it's hard to lift my anchor due to the fact it sucks to the water a bit more. However, it swings so nicely and has good movement.

It looks like an extremely simple design to duplicate. My only concern is that the material would foul around the hook. Have you had this problem?

I'd probably lean towards the 8wt, although certain brand 7wts could accomplish this. (not all 7-8wt rods are equal comparing across the spectrum). I'd also stick to fast action rods if you can. That...
