I'm a stillwater fly fisherman that fishes for rainbows in the lakes around Kamloops, British Columbia. I've been fishing a pair of well worn Sage 596 XP's for the last decade plus and was looking at a longer rod specifically for chironomid fishing. I sent an email to Red's and had a response from a gentleman named Craig in less than a day. He steered me towards the Hydrogen Trout Spey in the 3113-4 configuration with a pair of Behemoth reels and a Rio Type 7 sinking along with a Rio Extreme Indicator. I typically fish leaders between 15-30' on my floating line with an indicator, #10 barrel swivel and split shots depending on the wind strength. I fish depths from 30'-70' straight down on a Type 7 sinking line with a 6' leader. I was amazed at how effortlessly the rod and floating line were able to pickup and cast out a 30' chironomid rig with ease. I highly recommend the package and Red's to any chironomid fisherman looking for the same things.
