These 13 footers are ideal rods for rivers that will not only hold large resident Trout or Char, but will also hold seasonal populations of migrating Salmon or Steelhead. In rivers such as this, the angler may need a two hander with just a bit more authority to not under rod the potentially larger Salmon or Steelhead, but still have the finesse to not over rod the resident Trout or Char. If these are the conditions that you may find on your rivers then these 13'0" rods will be Ideal.

In Oregon for example, the Deschutes is famous for its beautiful High Desert Red Band Rainbows. These are feisty, thick slabbed rockets that will get into the 20" plus range, with larger fish exceeding 5 pounds. But Steelhead to the mid-teens are also present nearly year around, and can often be caught in the same holding water, and on the same flies as will the Red Bands. The image of Marni Sickles is showing a typical Deschutes Summer fish. This chromer caught with the 13057S Highlander  married to a classic floating Spey line.

All of these 13 footers are extremely light weight in hand, and are easy all day tools.

My own back yard rivers are the Rogue, the Umpquas, and the Klamath drainage. All of these rivers have strong and healthy runs of migratory game fish within a 4 season fishery. Most of our Steelhead will be in the 6 to 12 pound range with the occasional fish into the mid teens. These are all mid-size rivers, and the 13'0" 400 to 650 grain rod is the ideal tool for our game fish on rivers of this size. This will be a rod that will always be packed in my truck and ready to go on any of these rivers... In all 4 seasons.
