The Reels and the 5wt switch rod are here!

I have spooled up the Orvis Mid Arbor wit ha 275 Skagit Rio line ,and about 200 yards of backing along with a 10wt Wolf Trinagle taper again with about 200 yards of backing. This set up will be for small steelhead and inland tailwater trout I see no reason for more backing! I will have pics next week, and hopefully this rain will have subsided and I can fish them both! i'm really excited about this. Stay tuned it will be worth the weight I think!

The Otter Box








We have all been there and said “I wish I had a hard case to carry my cigars, keys, cell phone, lighter, and digital camera”. The Otter Box Company has come through for me for years now. I have taken this to fish in the ocean, and all the fresh water you can imagine. I have never had a problem with these cases. They can be found at www.otterbox.com. The Otter Box’s’ have dovetail construction closing latches that ensure that the object inside stays inside. There are several boxes that have a liner in them. I like the yellow color the best due to its high visibility! I have lost my cigars in the surf and they remained dry 20 minutes later when I found them adrift in the rocks!
