Man, this is nearly love for this rod. It’s really fascinating for me to think about how people all really like different rods. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not going to part with my Oni or Suntech; both killer rods with few comparisons. But I have to say, this rod is amazing. Absolutely perfect for the water that I fish on a regular basis and awesome for 6-10" (15-25cm) brook trout. It casts all of the flies I like to fish easily; including small bead heads without a problem. Personally, I really like it’s action and profile.
I got out for two hours this morning right after sunrise. I don’t usually care about catching a lot of fish; as long as there’s a few, I’m happy. But man it’s fun once in a while. I caught 23 in two hours this morning.
