First time out with the 270 Nissin in quite awhile today. The stream is very shallow, narrow and brushy.
I tried something different today and used the smallest size of Thill ice bobbers and they really worked well. No splitshot, just a SBL-35 hook and a pair of salmon eggs. Didn't hang up once and roll cast pretty well.

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.
