Had a 1st today fly fishing in a LONG time!!! Finally got to get my brand new Scott switch rod wet. Love the rod so far, and the more i use it the more i think i'll like it!! Today was my first day with it on the river, got into a few steelies with it, and got to land my fish #1 on the new rod! All fish today were on pink mcflyfoam eggs and 1 fish on BH.... I was ecstatic to hook and land fish on my 1st trip out with it! Got to break it in right!

That is a great picture. Congrats. Were you swinging or using an indy rig?

Well I bought the rod for swinging... But been slow at work and not wanting to spend the money left on a new reel and a skagit head... SO I pulled my reel off of my sage and put it on the scott. Indy rigs is wat we were doing today, the guy i fished with swung for a little while and hit nothing.
Good stuff, Kyle! Your phone is going to end up in the drink if you keep talking on it while trying to cast. :D
I hit this one after we saw you guys.
