    Default picked her up last night-let the madness begin

    At the Columbus F3T, I won the grand prize..my choice of an Orvis Rod which was graciously donated by Mad River Outfitters. I finally took a couple of hours off yesterday afternoon to pick up my new Helios 7Wt Switch rod. We up fitted it with a Hydros reel and of course an extra spool both lined up for Indicator and swinging. Now to get out and use this beast!!!

    That sounds awesome! My next rod is going to be a 7wt switch. Unless I win a grand prize it will probably not be the Helios. I'd love to have one though.

    I cast my buddies single hander last summer 9'8wt H2 and it was a dream to cast.
