A day with the Daiwa Seiryu X 35

by bill piatek

Another many many day but this time with the Seiryu X 35. The rod is soft enough that the 12 inchers gave me all I could handle in the current. Tiny bobber with a #8 S-21 Cultiva hook and salmon egg. I don't know why but this setup produces nothing but lip hooked fish.

They weren't in the same spot as last week with Terry but about 30 yards below at the tail of a fast chute. For a while I was hooking a fish on nearly every cast.

Return to Your Keiryu Stories.

“The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten” - Benjamin Franklin

"Be sure in casting, that your fly fall first into the water, for if the line fall first, it scares or frightens the fish..." -
Col. Robert Venables 1662

As age slows my pace, I will become more like the heron.


The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
