Great Lakes Angler 3 Week Dry Spell

I haven't wet a line in 3 weeks and my posts have been scant at best. I apologize for the state of relative radio silence. My work has kept my busy this month, particularly on the weekends.

The good news, however, is that I was able to take my new fly casting set up out in the vacant lot behind work today and nearly hit a wall 50 feet away with some of my casts. This rod acts like a spring and punches line out. I've never been able to throw a cast and have it pick 8 or 10 feet of line up from my feet. It's a wonderful sound hearing it zip through the guides.

Steelhead... Steelhead... Steelhead... I'm coming for you the second I get a chance.

Thanks for reading and I promise you some meatier posts soon.
