With the new forum rules I figure I had better finally learn how to post a pic.

Was out at a local lake fishing for these gems,(should narrow your search down a bit) on my new 2wt G2. Very fun indeed.



I caught 6 from 12"-16" in about 3 hours before I was numb and I moved on. One brighter male that I caught had sea lice on him. :(
I reached for the camera but I was by myself and he wanted to go. I figured the poor guy had enough on his plate already. I tried to treat them with as much care as possible as they are a delicate species, but they were an absolute joy to play on a light weight fly rod. Not a steelhead, but I sure had fun. :peace:

Hey Rib...

I just figured out I saw you guys on Sunday at Reaction. I was the big guy who came in bought some leaders, talked to Darrel and left. I recognized nates and then remembered the cleveland hat. I knew it looked familiar to me. I'll make sure to say hi next time.

I was using a 2 wt. Rio Selective Trout floating line (chartreuse) on my Hardy Featherweight (click + pawl) with a ten foot 5x teapered leader and about a five foot flourocarbon tippet. I was using a maroon micro leech as chironimids did not give me the instant gratification I so desperately needed. (This is a new rod we're talking about here) I tried at first anchoring and using an indicator with the leech but again grew impatient and slow- hand retrieved without the indicator and hooked the above fish immediately. I prefer this method anyway so I was psyched when it kept working. Beautiful specimens they are, gottal love those cutty's.

I figured that was coming. I was worried about mentioning my setup as I have now been outted as the gear head that I am. It was quite costly, but you could do it much cheaper than I did and still have the same fun.(Say a 2wt. St.croix and a half decent trout reel). The reel is rather insignificant for this type of fishing. Heck... you could probably wrap the line around your hand if you wanted. I just like the soothing sound of a Hardy when I fish my lightweight set-up. Yes... I know I have issues. :happy: It was about $1000. I have patient creditors.

They warned me at Reaction about casting a G2, let alone catching a fish on it. I sold all my Sage rods to make it happen, and now only fish Scott. Ahhhh.... the fun of it all. I wonder how long this craze will last before I switch again... Now I know why I have short relationships. I look forward to you all calling me crazy. :peace:

Nice job on the Oncorhynchus clarki :thumbup:

-RC
Thank you RC...lol... I'll be saying that everytime a catch one from now on. :beerchug:

The v2 is a great rod as well, like I said I have issues which is why I have G2's. I've got the 4wt v2 and I like it a lot. So does my buddy who demands to fish it everytime we go because he loves it over his TFO. For $200 it is a very sensitive stick that will shoot line into the wind, without having a crazy fast action like my old xp. Gettin the trout itch too aren't ya? :peace:
