Will do a little more talking about the Scott Radian 907 in the future , but just wanted to post a couple quick pics from a personal trout streamer day with Ed McCoy yesterday. Was my first day with 907 and so glad I bought one, great rod for the Michigan trout scene. Perfect with my 250 SA sink tip.
With the official start of lamprey season (chestnut lamprey), the biggest match the hatch we have here in Michigan for our streamer program. Not that there is really a season for lamprey, but I just happened to notice they the crawled out of the mud this week. Some people have told me trout don’t eat lamprey. Okay. If they don’t eat them, I’m fine with that, but they sure don’t like them. Pictured below is a trout we caught this weekend on an imitation lamprey streamer pattern. This trout had 11 different lamprey attached to him and out of anger destroyed my simple fur and feather pattern.
