I just jumped in the world of fishing and I would greatly appreciate some help from you experienced fishermen regarding a couple issues.
1. I purchased one 10wt. Echo-3S saltwater series fly rod and one Ross 7/8 wt. fly rod. I caught some sockeye on these poles with coho flies and pencil sinkers. Now i want to catch silvers. My friends told me that salmon-roe and vibrax are the two most effective ways to catch silvers. They also told me that I wasted my money on these fly rods because I can't cast vibrax and roe from it easily. I think the only option left for me to catch silvers is to use egg-sucking leech flies with a pencil sinker and drift it close to the bottom just the way i did for sockeye. Am I going to significantly decrease my chances to catch silvers because I can't use vibrax or salmon roe with my fly rods ? Did I really waste my money buying these expensive fishing poles ?
2. I want to catch some Steelheads this year and some kings next year. Are my fishing poles not perfectly fit for these two fish as I can't cast spinners/roe/spin-n-glow from my pole ?
