Now that you have gone past the title and got over your initial thought of what kind of a pervert I have turned into the picture should answer any questions you may have had.  Swingers in the Steelhead world are fly fishermen that swing cast or swing flies downstream.  Seems simple enough but it is rather overwhelming.  Skagit lines, Mow tips, t-7, t-11, t-14, perfection knots and the big flashy flies are a little daunting.  I won’t even get into the 11′ – 7″ rod and Ross reel that holds the 3 colors of backing, Shooting Line, Skagit Head and Mow tip.  It made my head spin when I took the steelhead fishing class back in November.  I learned how to cast on one of the I never knew existed steelhead streams in northern Ohio.  Problem was that was back in November and now several months later I have forgotten everything I learned.  Swinging “D”, Reverse “C”, Roll Cast……all seemed very easy back on November 2nd.  Not so much now.  That is what got me out on the Lower Huron this cold Sunday afternoon.  A need to practice before I hit the AuSable and thoroughly embarrass myself.

I need a lot of practice.
