Default Pulled the trigger on that Okuma 7' 3wt

Took my new Okuma 7', 3wt to an undisclosed small stream and tossed dries at willing wild browns for a couple hours this morning.
Weather was cool and cloudy and a small BWO hatch provided enough fodder for those little brownies to go into a feeding frenzy. They took everything I threw at them including size 20 BWO, Matt's Midge, Para Adams and even a size 16 stimy that Bones gave out at the swap last year.
It took a little while to get used casting the new shorty but got the hang of it pretty quickly. Nice little rod for the money.
I got an Alpha 3/4 from Justin for the rod but haven't switched the line to it yet.
Here's the first fish caught on the new rod.

Were you so eager to fish that you forgot to take the shrinkwrap off the handle?

Seriously, congrats on the new toy and nice fish.
