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.
