Got my steelhead/salmon tag, first time in many years. Figured I'd try combat fishing again. On the plus side I have made many friends along the Applegate river so I don't have to put up with the *&^%$ on the main Rogue River. But on the other hand winter fishing has it advantage, not that many people want to deal with the cold. Plus for me. Did a complete strip down and rebuild on my son's rod, new eye's and handle. New line on my reels, checked out my fly fishing rod just in case I get the urge. Getting a new fishing rod and reel for Christmas, 9'6" Lamaglass with a Abu spin reel. Wife sazs I don't get to touch it until after Christmas. For storing your pretied hooks and leader stop by the hardware store and get a length of water pipe insulation, I use the foam insulation for 3/4 in pipe and cut it to fit in my tackle box. That's about 12" long. Also pre sacking my roe. Had to buy some, sure has gotten expensive. Anyone else getting ready?
