My buddy Nate and I went up to a secret location, called “Location X,” somewhere around Wyoming to try out our 5-weight Spey rods for some big trout. It worked out fairly well, as we swung up a couple of monster fish after only a couple casts. Turned out to be quite a productive day, as well.


You rarely see monster cutthroats like these sipping bugs off the surface, so you gotta go deep.
