Winter Steelheading: Getting the Right Speed

By Scott Richmond

Previously, pro steelhead guide Rob Crandall talked to us about choosing the right fly for winter fishing and getting the right depth. In this third and last interview, he discusses the speed of presentation. If the fly is swinging too fast--a common but unnoticed problem for most anglers--you won't get many fish. MP3 audio, 6.01.
