Default WOW! Momma

Total surprise to me, but check out my Mother's Day gift:

Not the reel, the rod. It is called "the Test". A 7'6" glass rod by Hardy. I know some wives just don't get it, but this is like .....the BEST GIFT!!!!!

Even the tube is cool with a CORK, and the little Ferrule plug....awesome!!!

Now I can put the Lamiglass, yellow three piece 7' four weight away for special occasions.

THANKS HUN!!!!

Wow that's so killer! I wish I could get my wife into fly fishing. We have a baby on the way, so maybe I could just start getting her fly fishing gear for gifts and they would then become mine!

That's a great gift Joni! I have been wanting one of those since they were introduced. Reels I have had plenty of but never have I owned one of their rods. I am thinking that it will be wonderful to cast with.

Nice
