My New Stick!
 
I've been looking at upgrading my rod for some time now and yesterday I finally decided with the Sage VXP in 9' 5wt. I matched it with the Sage 1800 series and I may love the reel even more than the rod! (it is my first large arbor though) It balances so well, casts beautifully, and doesnt look too bad either!

I got to take it out for a few hours this morning and managed to land two nice rainbows. It's amazing how much easier this rod throws line and hits where I want it to than my old clearwater! I can't wait to really break it in!

Nice looking outfit, congrats! You should have a blast breaking that rig in.

It's good to know that you got some action on the rod already. But, please, get that cork dirty!

Enjoy your new toy.

Nice choice I've been looking at one in a 6wt.

Congrats on the new bug wand! I've got a "thing" for large arbor reels; I just wish there were more large arbor reels out there for us obsessed with ultra light fly fishing.
