"...yes,Ferrari with big double engine.
I just come back from salmon fishing (Salmon River,NY) After good ten years fishing for Salmon on this river and using so many different fly rods this time I took my brand new ZG Helios Switch 1110-4.
After two days with no luck on upper sections I decided try lower parts near Port Ontario.Was a good decision because after few cast I got my first fish.My first concern was how this rod will handle so big fish but after "initial run" when I tight little my reel and put more work on rod...I was so surprise.This rod handle my fish so easy.Another fish,and another real "monster" and no problem...I still felt more power in this rod then I really need...so if you are thinking about fishing for "Monsters" don't worry ,this rod surely do the job.
