I thought it was a great interview, no two ways about it. A lot of behind the scenes nuggets on what goes into producing something like this. Convincing sponsors to fund such a project that targets maybe 2% of the sport fishing market, is a monumental achievement in itself. Putting it all together in a way the DVDs do not not become just another boring show & tell is an under appreciated skill sometimes unnoticed.

After two seasons of pursuit, fishing 8/9 weight rods catching dozens of 12-18cm trout, the occasional 5-6lber, I went out armed with a #6 weight, targeting trout, not the salmon(which is our fish of 10,000 casts) and half hour after starting, hooking what I believed to be a good trout after 5 mins got sick of playing games and took off, up river! Landed 20mins later! King salmon on a #6weight Scott L2h, opst commando head 325grain, and 10ft of t10, and a 3inch version of Jerry Frenchs Dirty HoH! Awesome fly! Sorry I can't up load picture, but you'll find it posted on Fishing Addicts NW facebook page

In answer to this question, 325 opst commando head is the shizz, next up the 325 Río Skagit max short (though struggled a bit in wind, assuming its the 5ft longer length reduces over all mass/density of the head. 400 Rio max short felt good, and handled the wind better, but a 450 Airflo skagit/switch was just a bit to much, so will be off to buy a 400grain, and a 350grain Rio max short heads, since my mate wanted his 400 back  Cry

Now the proud owner of one of these, can someone advise me of what the preferred line weight is for this rod? I have a 450grn Skagit switch, but I'm sure that's going to be to heavy, so what is the line weight "window" for these rods? Looking to get two or three lines two for fair weather conditions and a heavy one for windy days.

I take off the shooting head and then let the running line dangle in the current for a bit.  Try giving your shooting head a good stretch before you fish.  Coils from the memory in the line cause it to corkscrew in the water during the swing.  I also believe that if the core is not centered in the fly line it will twist.  I have numerous lines of the same brand and grain weight, same age, one twists and the other doesn't.

Pain in the ass when they do.

If someone would have given me that reply, I would have been turned off; not to fly fishing, but to the culture of fly fishing.

Which reply are you talking about? 

I don't believe there were many bloopers or out takes.  The podcast is pretty much how it went down.

Thanks for the words.

Thanks for posting the interview. It was a good listen. I have a lot of thoughts but I leave you with a couple. Fly fishing was my gateway to enjoying the sport of fishing. I had no real interest in fishing until I picked up a fly rod. If someone would have given me that reply, I would have been turned off; not to fly fishing, but to the culture of fly fishing. When I started, I became a hardcore trout fisherman who didn't understand a steelheader's mentality. But I loved to cast a fly rod and I became enamored with casting. That was my path to chasing steelhead.
  I think that you should post some of your outtakes and bloopers. That would be entertaining. You have some great stories and I'm envious at how you are able to articulate your thoughts and ideas.

Tight lines,
Keith

Nearly two years ago April interviewed me at my home for her podcast.  I’m very happy with how this turned out.

After spending time on her site, I can see why she’s putting in the effort. Our oral history should not fall into a black hole. 

Thanks for listening.
