    Yes but your a better man for what you did! Family comes first, good on you for helping your garndmother in her later years!

    Well, it's been a while, but here are the pics of my Tom Morgan 7'9" 3 wt. I think you'll like it.

    This rod that comes so nicely housed that you have to look at it in layers:

    Here's the outside cloth case:



    Here's the rod tube that's inside it:



    One more; the cloth sock this time:



    And here's the rod:









    This won't catch more fish for me; but it helped to catch me!



    And the balance with a Hardy Featherweight and WF3F line on it is hard to beat!



    Sorry for the fuzzy pics, I didn't take my tripod outside with me today. Unfortunately, shaky hands give you shakey pics. If you're interested in more detail, I'll set up the tripod and we can have a better look.

    For a small freestone trout fisherman, like me, it doesn't get much better than this rod set-up. I highly recommend both Tom's rods and his organization. Working with he and Gerri was very special and, for me, added a lot of personal value to this rod.

    Allan: What a wonderful looking rod! I really like the way it balances with the Hardy Featherweight and the rod tube and cloth sock are great! Hope you have many great days on the water enjoying that rod! Thanks for posting the photos.

    That is a beautiful rig that you have there. A classy rod like that deserves the Featherweight. I am envious of you.

    Enjoy your new rig.
