That should get you one hell of a cast. Do you have to register it with the FAA to warn low flying aircraft?

I have that rod on the wall and have to admit, I think I fished it twice in 2 years. How do you like it?

Here are a few of my tackle images.

G. Loomis Streamdance GLX 9' 5wt. Sorry for the lack of sharpness in this picture...this was right after I caught my first rainbow and was full of adrenalin

What about love for flylines? Sometimes fishing is so slow the line is all you have to keep you busy

Some very nice custom rods out there, but what really gets me are the feathers in Ard's first two pictures. How many jungle cock patches do you have Ard?

And the top secret rod looks like a Winston Derek Brown Favorite to me. I have an 8/9.....it's a serious rod for serious fish

Obviously I won't be able to slip anything past you Brady! About a dozen on those capes I think and that is the 10/11

I bet the 10/11 is for even seriouserererrrr.... fish. The 8/9 is one damn powerful rod. Have you lined her up yet?

Now you have a good excuse to get a 4.5" Perfect.
