Great Keiryu Story!

by Les Albjerg

Chris - Nice to hear a Keiryu story! I am also loving seeing one of my favorite rods the Suntech Keiryu Sawanobori 63. One of the problems with this format is we can't discuss your great story!

Last time out with the Sawanobori 63, I fished a new ultra-light method in the Boise River. Many of us fly fisherman love fishing the egg sucking leech pattern. I was fishing a Keiryu variation that I call the "Egg sucking Red Wiggler". I thread a salmon egg on the hook, and then thread a red Wiggler. On the Boise River, using this method a few weeks ago, I went 8 for 10 on the first 10 casts, 6 rainbows and 2 browns. Give the "Egg sucking Red Wiggler" a try!

Let's talk Keiryu!

I need to start raising those reds Les!

Yesterday and today I fished with Berkley Honey Worms, trout worms and eggs. Yesterday they hit the Honey Worms right away but not today.

Today I had to resort to salmon eggs. They would drop the artificial stuff after the first bump. Missed a ton of fish in a very short time.

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.
