Just picked it up from Ed at FSA Custom Rods! I actually bought the blank on Ebay and had him wrap everything up for me.
My instructions were simple, nothing over the top, and cheap. After all, this rod will spend a lot of time in my suitcase, the back of my truck, and chasing trout and gills all over the country. The thought of having something over the top was just beyond my comfort level.
I couldn't be happier!
I haven't had a chance to cast it yet as it is cold and windy here in the Chicagoland area but as soon I get a chance, I'll be out there in the lawn.
As of now, I plan on fishing it on Sunday and in mid-March, it will be casting tiny dry flies to some brook trout in Maryland.
