Vince, took a day off to fish it this week and love the rod. No top water action but I did take some time to cast dries and the rod did nicely with single and double dry rigs. Presentation was easy, landed softly and it put the fly where I wanted it. Mostly fished nymphs. Fish liked beaded stonefly nymphs and rabbit foot emergers so I fished multiple nymph rigs under and indicator. Easy to cast, toss and the extra length helped control the drift.

Sadly my first fish slipped away while I was getting ready to take the picture, but it was a nice brown. My second was this rainbow, was fishing alone so tough to get a good shot before a quick release. The rest of the fish were similar rainbows.
