Fall Fishing Gear
By Monthly Raffle Director Jeff Goyert
When it starts to rain, usually, steelhead fishing can't be too far off. For the raffle this month we have a nice Maxcatch Premier 7 weight rod. This 4-piece rod is 9 feet in length which makes it perfect in the willows on small water like the San Lorenzo. This rod features a large loop tiptop, seven snake guides, two stripping guides, and a small cone knob fighting butt. It is green in color, a real beauty; also great for stripers in the Forebay or the Lahontans at Pyramid Lake.
Door number two has a nice Dan Bailey DB shock cord wading staff. It is 57 inches long with a modified spike tip; it is just what most all of us need to safely get in position to effectively present our offerings. A wading staff can also be helpful getting down the steep canyon trail to just get to the river. The staff folds up to an eleven inch package that stores conveniently in a belt holster; they are much more likely to be used if they are on your belt than if they are left in the back of your truck.
Last but not least, we have a gorgeous bamboo fly box. This beauty is 3 1/4" x 5 1/4" which makes it perfect shirt pocket size. It has six rows of slotted foam on opposite sides, each row having a capacity of a dozen smaller flies. The box has two single pin hinges and magnetic clasp closures. It's a perfect treasure to store your most treasured flies.
