    This has to be my favorite plastic rod I have built. Usually I'm elbow deep in Bamboo. St. Croix Imperial 11'6" 5 wt. switch. Built it for the surf, but can't bring myself to get salt on the Nickel Silver.





    Thanks for looking,
    Pete

    Nice stuff man! How do you like the trout stalker on that rod? I am debating putting it on my 8' 3wt BIIt,

    I was iffy at first. Then, I got used to it. Then, I fell in love with it. The thing about that rod with that line is to really slow down your stroke and lengthen it. That rod is butter smooth and will do all the work for you if you let it

    You have to slow down with the BIIts no matter the line. A friend has one with Rio ST DT on it and it needs to load before you can cast it well- but I fell in love with it. I am just debating a DT line vs the Stalker.

    Post a review of that reel when you can. I literally don't have a rod that "needs" a reel. But since I am a unabashed acquirer of overpriced fly gear ...aka gear junky ( see abel nipper thread hahaha ) I've been wanting to try one of those new speedsters.

    I will definitely do that. I had a 5 pounder on into my drag on that rod and reel. It was damn fun!

    Box (afternoon's worth anyway) topped off varnish is dry and it looks like there is a weather window to swing up a lake run brown or bow!



    Yesterday I got out on the grass and really tried to throw some line, at 7'4" it just tosses a lot of line out there, with control too! I can't wait to get to the river!!
