This rod was designed for “side drifting”, a technique similar to “boon dogging”, but a little more on the power side of the scale. It also requires a boat, but rather than drifting the baits at an upstream angle, you drift at the speed of the current, perpendicular to the boat. It takes a little more power as the bite can be quick and intense and you need to react quickly. This rod is designed for winter steelhead, but is more effective when there’s a little color in the water so you don’t spook the fish.
