Fall Steelhead Spey casting with Irideus Spey Rods and Zen Shooting Head Fly Fishing Line Systems

Tight quarters do not stop a season spey caster from hitting his mark. The beauty of a spey rod can be the ability to cast where standard fly casters can not. This can be a major bonus on heavily fished bodies of water. The Irideus 6/7 spey rod makes fast work of these tree lined quarters.

The fly fishing journey often leads us to the river. Yet it is the connection to the stream that makes the experience come full circle. Where the creeks and streams merge with the rivers we love life is abundant. A short hike up the confluence reveals the inner workings of the complex ecosystems we call church. Add a fly rod and a pocket full of flies and you may have the a very special day on your hands. add a close friend a dog and a homemade lunch, well life is good. The Irideus company holds close to these days on the waters we watch the seasons change on. It is about a company and customers on the same path. our journey has been rich with the memories of these days on the water.

The true reward of our relationship with the water are the mighty fish we search out and truly bless our lives. Its in the eye of mother nature the entire picture becomes clear. Catch and release is not only what the Irideus fly fishing stands behind yet also passes everywhere we fly fish. Look at this face in the picture above.

In life stay positve. What your searching out may be just around the next turn. An obstical can turn into a hurdle in life to land you just where you wanted to be. Nature tries to teach us this on the water fly fishing. make that hike around the next bend!
The places close to our heart have taken years to master. The complex ever changing water has made the Irideus fly fishing company in tune to say the least. Sometimes its the return to home town water using the same approach as years past to confirm this is about the sport not the million dollar pipe dream. Mother nature will shake your hand with a silver bullet if you get her drift.
