Default Armed and dangerous

I picked up a Greys Platinum SW 9' 9wt and some SA Mastery Striper medium sink line today. My first foray into SW fly fishing. I am armed and ready to go to war with the ferocious New England game fish. I will try and leave you guys some...but I cant promise.

Congrats on your purchase. Go get them! Make sure to tape up your fingers or wear stripping guards. Your fingers will appreciate it.

I never thought about finger protection. Thanks for the heads up. Only lawn casted it so far. Its fun casting 9wt line. It just flies. The rod feels great, but the real test will be in water.

Josh,

I have an old Greys Platinum X in 9'6" 7wt and it is a great rod, I'm sure you'll like yours.
