Casting the Heavy Carpetbagger and Beadhead G.R. Hare’s Ear Combo

A video showing the casting of the heavy, 2-fly rig-ups that are popular on the Rogue River during the Fall. The flyrod is a 6 weight, 11′ 3″ switch flyrod. The flies being cast are a size #4 Carpetbagger Nymph and a size #6 G.R. Hare’s Ear Nymph. Both flies are heavily weighted. They get deep fast in the solid, heavy flow of the Rogue River. The length of the switch stick helps to get the job done quite nicely. The quarry is the wily summer steelhead of the upper Rogue River, Oregon.
