Default New rod

This followed me home today.... After fishing exclusively with Orvis Superfines forever, this is going to take some practice. Also tried A Sage One and a Winston something...this one chose me.

Well if it followed you home, you can't very well turn it out.

Plans to go catch some trout with it this weekend have gone south with the weather forecast. Rain in the morning turning to snow/single digits. I'll have to interrupt my previously scheduled work time next week...

Congrats! Of course, following you home is one thing, but the real test is whether Mom says you can keep it.

My wife is a very special person. She encouraged me to buy it and was with me when I bought it. And she was in the store looking for Christmas gifts while I was outside test-casting. Yep, very special.
