A Farewell

This post has been a long time coming,

I must pay a tribute to my now deceased warm water fly rod. I had concocted this abomination of fiberglass out of a bass rod blank, just for kicks. It was solid and caught me plenty of monsters. I used it in salt and fresh waters, catching everything from bluefish to carp. I caught all of my carp this year on it. Here is a photographic synopsis of it's success':



















But the spinning fly rod will rise again! I have plenty of unusable spinning rods laying around and have already started the next project.

  1. Yes indeed, you had a great year! Good memories to help you prepare for the Spring. Rods, reels and flies, a good project for the bad weather days that keep us off the water.
    Fish on...
