Been catching pa steelhead with a 10’ 7 and 9’6 8 weights and like them. Recently I got on a buying spree thinking I needed some two handlers. I’ve had a 14 foot Cabelas tlr 9 weight I impulse bought when it was on sale awhile back and never really got a line to cast it. Got on The inter webs and bought like new pro4x 11’6 9 weight and a hardy jet 10’6 6/7. Sierra trading post has sa freightliner skagit kits with tips on sale for about 55 if you have a coupon which is easy to get, so I got a 450, a 520 and a 600 grain one which was weight grain recommended on the rio website. I found some airflo 30 shooting line cheap and bought two of them also. I plan on using 65 pound power pro slick 8 as backing. Haven’t done much other research, but should I have gotten heavier shooting line? 50# or so? I’m hoping to get to fish New York and possibly Michigan in the future, and I’m definitely going to Alaska In about two years to do a diy float trip. I’m interested in chatting about all things fishing, especially pa and ny steelheading, and Alaska fishing. I have a 14’ nrs raft and fishing frame and live in West Virginia. I also really enjoy flats fishing. Like to get together and fish and learn to two hand cast!
