*Please no hooks while at the demo, casting yarn will be provided.  Please display vehicle use permit or discover pass in vehicle.

There is a decent amount of parking at the Ben Howard Boat Launch.  But if you are trying to coordinate with a group.  You might try parking at Lewis Street Bridge in Monroe and carpooling to Ben Howard.

 Representatives will be on hand from Olympic Peninsula Skagit Tactics.  The group will give a demo and then put a rod in your hand to try.    

We have been playing around with these heads for some time now.  On steelhead outings these fly lines play a vital roll in covering small water with a swung fly.   

Many smaller rivers like the higher coastal streams of the Oregon, Washington, California and British Columbia are perfect for single-hand spey techniques. 

The OPST Commando Head is a short (12 through 18 feet) and are best cast on 9 foot trout rods on up to two-handed rods around 12 feet.  You can take your standard trout fishing rod and create a really fun new setup.
