Swing Fishing by Matt Barthels
As we move into November, river conditions and fish behavior begin to change. The last of the salmon have died off and the eggs that have flooded our rivers for the past two months have started to taper off. The diminishing amount of caviar around will have the steelhead in the rivers moving into sandier lies and looking for different food sources. This opens up the opportunity to utilize one of the most exciting techniques we use for steelhead--swinging.
Spey Lines by Matt Barthels
With the two handed and swinging scene starting to gain popularity, there have been a lot of new developments in spey equipment. One of the largest areas of development is in spey lines and shooting heads. These are constantly changing and improving in both castability and fishability. Guide Matt Barthels explains the innovations that both Scientific Anglers and RIO have made for spey lines.
