Default Re: Rod Love; the Fly Rod Picture Thread

In an effort to keep the Rod Love thread healthy I'm adding a couple photos. The rod is my 1968 Orvis Full Flex 6'6" fiberglass. Although the rod is rated as a 6 weight it will cast really well with a 4 - 5 or #6 line. I use a #5 line and a 1983 CFO IV on it. Together this makes a really nice outfit and for small stream wet fly fishing it is an effortless casting rod.

I fished all day with my Nine Three variants as the flies and used a 24" Beartooth Montana Braided lead head to keep my fly deep. The rod is small and light at 2 3/4 oz. but will handle trout up to 2 foot if you can keep them on the hook.

Recently I've had a run of large fish coming off the hook on me. This is the creek I've been fishing with this outfit.
