I go out with my buddy Troy and cast some brief 450 gr OPST task force heads on different 8wt rods from 13′ to 13′ 6″
Casting heavy flies, long and heavy sink pointers is facilitated. A terrific line for close quarters AND simple range. Troy hooks and loses a truly good steelhead in a tough area. We both land a great hatchery salmon for supper. There was much rejoicing.
