Winter Steelhead

The Winter Steelheading is just getting started here in So. Oregon on the coastal streams we have been having an extreme drought up until the last day or so. Every guide I know is chomping at the bit to get on the water. I just received a text from 2 good friends of mine that are guides and they are fishing the Chetco today and doing well.^!

A FRIEND CAME BY AND COMPLAINED ABOUT THE PRICE OF GOOD SALMON/ STEELHEAD SLIP BOBBERS. I TOOK HIM OUT TO THE SHOP AND DUG OUT SOME GOOD CEDAR 2X2s, CUT THEM INTO 4 INCH LENGTHS AND TURNED THEM ON THE LATHE. THEN DRILLED THEM WITH A 6 INCH BIT AND STUCK A COFFEE STIR STICK THROUGH THE HOLE. I CUT THE STRAW 1/2 INCH LONGER THAN THE BOBBER AND HEATED IT WITH A TORCH TO SHRINK IT INTO THE HOLE. THEN A GOOD COAT OF LATEX VERITHANE AND SOME SAFETY ORANGE PAINT ON THE TOP AND THEY WERE READY TO FISH!
NO MORE $6+ FOR A BOBBER AND THEY FISH BETTER TOO!
IT IS ALWAYS MORE FUN TO FISH WITH YOUR OWN HAND MADE TACKLE TOO.
