    Default Side drifting

    When sidedrifting for steelhead is it best for your slinky or pencil lead to be fixed at a your swivel or as a slider on your mainline?? I've seen both ways done not sure if it makes a dif or not any opinions out there??

    Default Camera is working

    Took a bit, but I was finally able to take some pictures of my gear.
    This is my newest toy:

    I like to carry a small amount of tackle in the chest pack with surpluss in the day pack.

    These go in the day pack:


    I also stow my rain coat in here but it is saoked right now.I carry the garbage bags for hatchery fish or, if it is a fisheless day, I spend time hunting for trash. River clean up is supprisingly fulfilling, and unfortunatly much more productive than fishing.

    A side note: I was thinking that it might be cool to do a product review in tandem with this gear post. We could select a new product that is sold in WA & OR and give feed back over the course of the winter steelhead season. Taking a look back at the response to the product should yeild a good review, not to mention a fun project.

    Those worms are great. They come in a few colos, and are the right length out of the pakage. Great jig heads as well; you can't beat that sickle bend. I haven't put in the hours with them yet, but I am hoping for some serious native action.

    They are made by Rvrfshr, and the worm and jig quality is outstanding. These are the jig heads I use.If you're into the worm thing they make a sweet 6" worm that comes with matching drift bobbers and hooks.

    Default Depends on the day....

    I generally fish from my drift boat so I carry a tackle box with tons of stuff but if I fish from the bank on a quicky day then I wear a vest that I drop on the bank........I don't have any pics right now but I will get some soon. I use Lamiglas Certified Pro rods cuz I like the feel, West Coast floats with inline swiveled weights and either bait or jigs that I tie myself. If I am drift fishing, it is corkies and yarn or a corkie with a bead under it with slinkies.
