    Smile Half Pounder's

    Quite a few half pounders in the lower American right now. Noboby seems to be talking about them. Catching them on the usual Spey and Soft Hackle patterns. From Sailor all the way down to Watt. Kind of nice to swing for them and give your arm a rest throwing those huge Striper patterns.

    Talking Half Pounders

    I am throwing a green Euphoria on a half and half MOW Tip. With the flows coming down, I'll switch to a 10 ft. floater. Also throwing green or tan Soft Hackles. Good luck.

    I will probably throw on some floating line on my 7wt rod and see what happens. Oh anyone think its possible to grab them on a 5wt rod?
