    But didn't these rods fare poorly in the Yellowstone Angler shootout?

    Be careful there, he does rough estimations on the number he catches and the size of them :p:p

    I heard something about swing weight and the rod not being ultra fast. A fast rod is a good rod. Duh!
    I make the jokes.

    Casting awesome , catching on the otherhand is a different story. The spot I go near work is near Kaiser aluminum, which adds is special phosphorus mix to the water and intakes/ expels a lot of water. It tends to scare most fish away ( when they dump)with the exception of a few small mouth. Good enough for a fist cast I guess. I will get to give it a real run through on Sunday. I wouldn't be surprised if I pull in several over 30"..... :)

    Could happen, some good sized Chinooks spill over from Lake Cda occasionally.
    At least you should have the rod for it if you get lucky.
