Putting the Hammer On Steelies

Here is my first steelhead on Scott's Fiber Hammer switch rod. The 10 foot 6 inch 7-wt. fiberglass rod is totally retro and a joy to fish. It is perfectly matched to a Scientific Anglers 450 gr. Single Hand Skagit Head and a dream to cast. At the recent Great Waters Fly Fishing Expo in Minneapolis, a glass rod afficianado described the rod as "delicious". After putting it to use on the water and catching several fish on the rod, I would agree. It is a super fun rod!

The Fish Dog conducts some stream entomolgy while I do the grip and grin.
