Hey all, It's been one hell yea a year for me so far. Already broke my fly rod tip twice this year and both times weren't my fault. My wife broke my tip section back in March on the steps walking upstairs and than on Opening day was April 6th while putting my fly rod down to get my spinning tackle ready a game warden comes up to me asking about how was I making out fly fishing I told him not to good, and few mins later he left as soon as I got my spinning tackle already I looked back and there is my tip broke in half called the guy back over and he just had the nerve to say ''Oh Sorry Buddy'' And got in his truck and lefted! Well Thank god that Orvis didn't take too long to receive my rod only 10-days and I'am back fly fishing! Finally 2-days ago had the chance to take it out to catch a few Bluegill's. Caught this lovely one. It felt great to cast it again and hooking fish!
