Shops have been setting up fly reels for their customers for eons. It’s rare when an angler needs to go home and attach the backing to their new reel and connect the fly line to the backing themselves. But I think it’s essential to know how to do it yourself. Not only so you can do it yourself if needed, but so you can be sure that the fly shop is doing it the best way possible.

Often times we as anglers get too comfortable chasing our favorite species and put blinders on to everything else that we have not tried. This was exactly my mentality the other day. I got a call from my friend Joel to go and spend the morning fishing. Awesome! Like most conversations we asked each other what we were thinking of doing. I wanted to go back to the trout river I was at a few days ago and explore more...boring and typical. He had a suggestion that I had never done before. Sea run cutthroat in the Puget Sound.

With the fall fishing season getting started it presents a wonderful opportunity to target the biggest fish in the river. This due to many species feeding heavily before winter. Many anglers in the Rocky Mountain region are lucky enough to have some wild trophy brown fishing, that is just turning on now. Perhaps the most fun way to target large aggressive browns is by throwing large 3-5 inch streamers all day long. Needless to say casting that much weight repeatedly can be taxing on the arm.
