River Run Anglers has added the following CND rods to the Try Rack.
The Skagit Specialists a 13ft 8 inch 4 piece for a 9 wt.
This rod was designed to work with the new Skagit Style Lines including the new Rio Scandinavian 8/9 and Loop 9/10.
I have been working with this rod about a Month now and I am truly amazed.
I have cast the rod with the Following lines with good results Rio Mid-spey 8/9 and Gradspey 7/8 and Airflow Longdelta 7/8 and 8/9 and Traditional in 7/8 and 8/9.
I am by no means done with the testing but this should give you a good place to start.

The Steelhead Specialist a 14ft 4 inch 4 piece for 8/9/10.
This rod was designed for an all around Rod to chase Steelhead.
This is a good rod for those who only want one rod for most Rivers and water situations.
The rod will cast a 9/10 Midspey, 7/8 or 8/9Grandspey depending on your casting style.
Will be working with Airflow and Rio Scandinavian lines in the near future.
If you are in the Neighborhood drop in and give them a go.

try rod status?

Hey Aaron, glad to see your post about getting the Steelheader Special 144/9. Any idea how long before you can send one my way (Michigan)?

Hey Aaron,

Adding the Skagit to my arsenal very soon and am thinking about getting the rio scand head for it.

Juro was telling me you are cutting back the 8/9 a little? Curious as to how much that is.

Thanks,

-sean

I have cut mine back about a foot.
If you get a chance stop by the shop and take it for a cast.
I have all 8/9 ,9/10 and 10/11 Tri Tips spooled up and ready to race.

The 8/9 and the Skagit makes a very easy casting combination.
I would like the water to go down and stay there so I could target some chums.

:devil:

Speybum,

Me thinks that the chum are going to be unmolested by fly fishers this year on the Skagit with all the wonderful chocolate mild water we've been having. I was hoping that the water would go down and be clear enough on your or its adjacent sister river to at least get a little dum fishing in. I must say, it doesn't look good though.

River may be 'rising,' but not here.

Rogue is still low and clear and chock a block with summer runs. Jimmie Jones and I were out this afternoon and did 'squat' between us .. but I did flat miss three fish.

Ever wonder how you can feel the head shake, you set the hook, and feel the head shake and ..zip? Suspect it was the interesting bend 'cadis' (sp?) hooks I had done up as 'copper johns.' Fish are loving them but the multi-bend in the hook doesn't want to latch up with the buggers.

Interesting, as I never had this problem with fish on the Russian River in Nor. Cal. or the Sky in Washington.

Go figure?:rolleyes:
