    I bought a Red Truck Diesel Switch rod to learn Spey casting and fish the Lake Ontario tributaries for Steelhead, Salmon and big Brown Trout. I just returned from a short 6 hour trip on Oak Orchard Creak near Rochester, NY and recalled that I had not submitted a review for this rod! I am extremely pleased with it’s performance across the board. It was easy to learn the basics of Spey casting but the convenience of double hauling when needed. The river was elbow to elbow but I was able to land a very nice salmon (my personal best actually), a nice steelhead and a brown. Apparently I need to work on my knots, I broke off 3 flies on hard strikes! I’m really pleased with the Diesel Switch rod, it is nicely constructed, attractive and has the back bone to land some monster fish but sensitive enough for delicate and accurate casts.
