Very nice. I didn't fish much over the winter but when I did it was with shanks. Now that it's the middle of summer I actually wouldn't mind zoning out doing some cast, swing, step. It'll be here soon enough.

Hope you're doing well Frank.

Thank you guys!!

Eunan - yes I plan on tying at the Symposium in November. Haven't received any emails about it though. Have you received any?

As far as the Salmon River is concerned, a 7wt or 8wt is fine in single hand, switch rod, or spey rod. I've never been out to Erie, so I'm not sure how light they go, but I would bet a 6wt would do the trick.
