Francois and Sylvain hit it right this time for their annual spring trip to the Salmon River after we had to reschedule due to the river running at 5000cfs. Swinging flies high in the water column was just what they wanted to do and they did. I will let the smiles tell the rest of the story. Looking forward to seeing you guys next season!

Switch Rods are a big part of a steelheader’s arsenal on the Salmon River for indicator fishing and swinging flies. While most try to do both with one line, its been pretty tough to cast a indicator rig and then cast a sink tip and heavy tip and a decent size fly with one line. Rio came out with the solution, “Switch Chucker”. The 7 weight line weighs in at 465 gr, the head is 25′ followed by a 14′ handling section then 61′ running line. I have it set up on a two TFO 7110-4 with Ross CLA 5′s and it will throw a indicator and shot 60′+ with ease. Then you can loop on a 10′ section of T-8 and it cast’s 60′- 70′. The perfect line for the switch rod owner who likes to do both.
