Sky High Gold! April 22 2014, 1 Comment
We were out on the river again, this time testing out the new Sky High Gold 5wt rod. We put it to the test casting fry patterns to large Bulltrout, Rainbows and cutthroat. Even in heavy wind, rain and fast water, it held up brilliantly. We also tried our hand at some nymphing and it handled a long indicator rig and heavy nymph with ease and produced a couple of nice fish as well. Very impressed!
We'll be putting together a feature on a suitable setup for lake fishing in a coming blog post, and this rod is sure to feature. Stay tuned!
Sky High First Time April 11 2014, 0 Comments
We recently took out a first-time fly fisher, and paired them with the Sky High 5wt fly rod, HVB fly reel, and a floating fly line. 30mins of casting instruction, followed by a little on-the-water instruction saw a newly competent fly caster catch his first fish on fly - a beautiful rainbow trout caught on the Rubber Legged 20incher fly. Incredible effort first time out!!
