Suggestions on how to get started. Besides buying a video, what rod, reel, line would a guy what to start playing with? Can't start with high dollar but can spend around a $600.00. Is this possible? Need help, please. I fish the Clearwater ID. Thanks
If you are not to far from Orofino or Lewiston you can come to the shop and try some CND rods out on the river. I would suggest the Expert 1409 with an Airflo Delta Long 9/10 or a MidSpey 9/10 if you perfer Rio products. Anytime you are ready for a test drive let me know. Your $600.00 will get the job done nicely.
Take care, MJC
coho48- I strongly suggest you get some lessons and try out some rods and lines before you drop the money. That will greatly shorten your learning curve and reduce frustration.
The Red Shed is a good place to begin. Also, subscribe to Dana's Speypages' newsletter. There is great information on technique that is not available anywhere else. Also, some great video clips. http://www.speypages.com/
If you can arrange it at all, get to the Sandy Speyclave or some other clave. Those are a great help.
