Greetings all.

Just registered on the site and am seeing quite a bit of useful info, so thanks in advance!

Longtime fly-fisherman, but very new new to the two-handed game. Got an 8 wt switch rod earlier this fall for steelheading, and as of this morning (after casting my buddy’s 7wt spey) am on a mission to get a spey rod. As I told another friend, “It’s a sickness”. :)

Anyway, just saying hi and making introductions. Looking forward to reading and learning, and hopefully contributing in due time.

Cheers, and Happy New Year!

ps: a couple weeks ago landed this biggest fish of my life on flyrod: 33” coho. Used a single-hand TFO 8wt with Wulff Ambush/10ft sinking versileader/pink and purple Alaskabou. Snapped this quick pic and then let it go with the verbal instructions to “go make more salmon”.

Ahhh the Alsea!

First add my warmest welcome, that river reference took me back in 'time.' Good friends lived about 30 minutes away and Wife 2.0 and I spent New Years Eve with them many calendar changes.

Zero dark thirty and I was in the Jeep headed for that river on 1-1-xyz. Never did catch a darned thing, but I was there before sun up. Usually freezing my butt I might add.:roll:

Just something about that river.

Nice fish. This two handed game is very addicting, be careful, your single hand rods may become very neglected - I haven't touch one in two years. Welcome!
