Julie and I watched the film this evening, very nicely done. We especially enjoyed the sound track and the cutthroats.

wile not bamboo, one of my covid projects last winter was an epic 5 wt, 8' , fiberglass rod.  i went the kit route, and they sent silk thread.  oh, boy, that thread is fine/thin !!!  i could have used some magnifying glasses.  rod turned out great, and the action suits me fine. the glass is an interesting yellow color.

good fishing

go

Fiberglass fly rods don't get enough mention.

I have one also.I used it a lot before the bamboo one.

It's a 7' 4 weight with a nice action.

If I don’t need a lot of reach, I will use a glass Sci Angler 9’ 7wt for steelhead.  It has a medium soft action that is fun with a good size fish on the end of the line.

hey bro !  most all rods are good with a good sized fish on the end of the line  !!

is this too early for the ronde ?

i did the ronde years ago at thxgiving and had some good times. though it was freezing....  took awhile to figure it out.  with the cold, the fish were not spectacular fighters..  great place.

We are new (still unpacking) to this area, so can’t answer questions on the Grande Ronde.   I grew up on the Rogue, above Dodge.

well, here is some very cheap inside info on ronde. i did the winter fishing only once, at thxgiving.  best results were upstream of troy, and i used some sinking line, but who knows what fly. probably redish.  got into em, but nothing like playing a summer/fall fish. better than staying home though...  but who knows, by the time they get that far, maybe we are better leaving them alone ?  but there are hatchery fish. i think

change up

the drift from minam to troy is great, if u are into that kind of thing
