Swung Big Fishing last year with my buddy Aaron Borrow in November and it's the perfect all-around stick for that area. Hoping to hit Penns on my next home visit to my folks.Most of my water in PA is pretty small too. I have the hydrogen 3113, and am glad I chose it over the 2. I fish soft hackles down to #16, streamers up to #4, and occaisionally will toss dries (upstream or downstream). What the rod will do depends more on the line used than the rod itself. For soft hackles, downstream dries, or occaisional upstream dries at close range, a DT5F does fine. For more distance or bigger flies, I go to scandi/skandit lines. Most importantly, no matter what line used, the 3wt matches 99.9% of my local trouts' size... the fish can show some fight, but I'm still able to release them quickly and alive, whether the water is high and heavy or low and slow. This has become my primary trout rod. I rarely use a SHer anymore unless the creek and fish are really really small.
I know they are popular on the Mo as well in the bigger sizes. Interested to try casting one soon.I have an ACR 11’7 2wt trout spey, probably my favorite stick to cast! It’s strung up with a SGS 227gr skandit line. Biggest fish so far was an 18” half pounder, fun on 10” trout and definitely will handle 2-3 lbers
I am in the market for another two-hander for trout and need to give them a call. I hear nothing but great things about their rods.I have an ACR 11’7 2wt trout spey, probably my favorite stick to cast! It’s strung up with a SGS 227gr skandit line.

It is a still frame taken from gopro video footage (head mount).Tyson,,, how did you manage to take that pic and fight the fish at the same time? or was it a friend taking pic?
Best way to get a nice photo of a steelhead, or any fish really, without having to bother it too much during the release.It is a still frame taken from gopro video footage (head mount).
I usually am not wearing it but if I hook a nice one will try to hit record and throw it on. Then using an editor at home you can export a still shot if you find an interesting frame. Not as good as having a real photographer but when you fish alone alot like me its something.
