Re: World record distance WF 5wt?
A couple years ago, we had our annual Stonefly BBQ and I brought a 5'3" Fenwick Ferrulite glass rod. I had the reel loaded with some old Wulff TT line. I watched Dave throw the whole line after a few casts to get used to it. Showoff.
Life is not like a bowl of cherries. It's more like a jar of ghost peppers. What you eat today might burn your ass tomorrow...
