My pleasure -- glad you found the info helpful!
If you can get all stainless hose clamps, they still work the best. I have since switched back to them. But if you can find rigid, high temp tubing, that stuff works like a charm. I got mine at Rona (sort of like a Lowes up here in Canada).
Regarding the Deschutes.... would LOVE to fish that sometime! Nice fish, BTW!!
Maybe I can reciprocate and take you to some good spots up north!
