Steelhead Spawning in the Elwha

stlhd tag_2 small-thumb-608x414-33425 Steelhead Spawning in the Elwha Share From Oregon Fly Fishing Blog LINK Posted on July 6, 2012 by Oregon Fly Fishing Blog On the heels of yesterday’s sneak peek of DamNation comes word from the Seattle Times that steelhead have been spotted spawning in the previously inaccessible stretches of the Elwha River above the dam removal site. For the first time in over 100 years, wild steelhead are finding their way up the Elwha and reclaiming their spawning grounds. In an uphill battle to recover the Northwest’s rivers and native anadromous fish runs, this news in nothing short of inspiring. It’s like Field of Dreams,” (said fish biologist John McMillan). As in, build it, and they will come. Or in this case, un-build it. “Not everyone gives them enough credit,” (McMIllan) said of the wild fish. “I give them a lot of credit. Cheers, John.

Ohhhhh.... Ahhhhhh....Yeahhhh : )

I bet you understand what he is saying.... aaahhhhh..... so good!

fiberglass switch rod - yellow beast

Fiberglass Switch Rod 8100, 8 weight 10 feet from yuhina on Vimeo.

home brewed from Lamiglas 9 weight 9 feet blank. you will think this little rod will take skagit 375 grain head?! (9-3 = 6 weight spey) NO no no... this yellow beast actually embedded a tremendous "butt power"; thus 375 grain won't load well until you start to jackup the head weight over 480 grain... I found a sweet spot on the 540 grain Airflo Skagit Switch. 540 grain @ 20'. If you familiar with this line, you know the reason this rod is called 'yellow beast'. It can cast anything you put on it... I mean "anything!" Cast well... great feel and good ol fiberglass "chewyness" rhythm! a 12 inches trout in a current will bend this rod, yet, it cast big stuff and small stuff really well. I am surprised that there are not much attentions drawn to those old fiberglass rod (yet). $35 blank cast better than my other $800 rods... the most interesting rod I ever owned! : )

revisit fiberglass rod - little yuhina

revisit the little gem rod - fiberglass I built this rod about 5 years ago, it was a little 3 weight 6'6 from lamiglass brown blank. Now, it is discontinued sadly. What a little great rod for small creeks. bluegill or trout. feather light, smooth and a lot of feels...when hook a fish, it fight vividly. I can not image who will use ANY graphite rod if they can get their hands on one of those rods. The other day, I handed this rod to a friend to test. He never fish fiberglass rod before, and he told me. This is the best trout rod he ever fished. This just give you a example how good the modern fiberglass has become... like my friend Cameron said: walk with Cane, fish with fiberglass... graphite? they can be used for tomato planting... ha... just kidding.

Turpentine

Please don't do it, don't you break that spell The one that you put on me fits too well It starts to play like a comedy Starts feeling like a punch line Starts feeling like a punch line Whatever you've been eating looks good on you Your wearing that smile like a false tattoo It's all I can do not to wipe it clean With a little bit of turpentine With a little bit of turpentine I know you've been down to see the river man You sins have been washed in the blood of the land But you could have been kind to a broken old man And saved just one for me Saved just one for me The Devil my care, but I tend to doubt it The other guy's never at home It's never been anything strange to me Just thinkin' about being alone Just thinkin' about being alone Please don't do it, don't you break that spell The one that you put on me fits too well It starts to play like a comedy Starts feeling like a punch line Starts feeling like a punch line I know you've been down to see the river man You sins have been washed in the blood of the land But you could have been kind to a broken old man And saved just one for me Saved just one for me The future aint what it once was I know Time speeds up and your mind gets slow Oh have mercy, what a way to go You've got you head up where the sun don't shine Head up where the sun don't shine Head up where the sun don't shine Head up where the sun don't sh
