These are some leftover pictures from June that I never got around to posting.
As you can tell from these shots, I am not a purist. In fact, I would probably spin fish more often if the damn line didn't tangle so much. Yeah I know, use a small barrel swivel. But that only works for so long. Honestly though, spinning rods are extremely versatile. You can cover a lot of water with one, they get into tight spots (no casting room) better than fly rods, and a lot of the time you can throw streamers (flies) better with them. I find that you can put some wicked action on Shenk's Minnows and Sculpins with a spinning rod.
