Airflo Rage Compact Fly line

Tim Rajeff and Tom Larimer talk about the Airflo Rage Compact Fly Line. This should be a great line for the Salmon River, I have one to try but I haven't strung it up yet.BTW, I think Tim is having to much fun making these video's, plus pay attention for some new slang in the spey world.

This break test video of the New Echo3 Spey rods is pretty impressive, watch this rod load up before it breaks.

Feenstra's Emulator

(Recipe for fly shown - there are other variations by the originator, Kevin Feenstra)
Hook: Dai Riki 700 size 4 - 4x long shank
Tail : Barred Marabou
Body: 1 or 2 Emu feathers wrapped forward followed by 1 Schlappen feather palmered through the Emu
Collar: 1 Mallard Flank feather (wood duck color) tied in by tip and wrapped in the opposite direction.
Flash: Copper Flashabou tied in on top of the body
Head: Nice solide clump of Australian Possum underfur and all. Push the tips over the eye of the hook so fur surrounds the shank and wrap the thread around the middle of the clump.  Push the butt ends back, wrap in front of them, for the thread head and tie off.

Airflo Head Bag

I'm one for "trying" to keep heads and tips neat and make sure they get put back in the right place. The Airflo head bag will help in the madness of tips and heads wound up in my pack or in my waders pouch. The overall size is 8"x10" and the pages are 6 1/2"x7", so its compact. Airflo heads come in a page instead of a spool so you can add them right in. Retail is about $16.00 on the bag, with extra pages are $1.00.

Stout Steelhead???

A weekend of Steelhead fishing with the boys wouldn't be complete without some Steelhead Extra Stout beer(s) and some facial hair, but I think Neill over did the facial hair!!
