" Find a feeding fish. Our first consideration is whether the trout are feeding - if at all. If they aren’t feeding, or at least watching for food, you may as well throw stones at them. It’s easy to mistake a non-feeding trout for one that is “refusing” your offerings, when in fact its just ignoring them, or asleep. When there is little food in the water column, trout often go into a semi-dormant state. A hatch of mayflies or drift of nymphs will wake them up in short order. "

Epic DH13 Two Handed Spey Rod Review

August 31, 2017 4 min read

Spey rod reviewI’m going to go straight into it, best and funnest rod I’ve ever cast!
