First time out with my Kiyotaki 24 rod
I took my new kiyotaki 24 rod out for the first time today. I used Chris’s recommendation on how long to make my 3.5 level line and tippet. I went one foot longer than rod for the level line and around a 3’ tippet. It took a while to figure out the right casting stoke. But what a fun little rod. I caught 6 small pan fish and two fingerling bass. I caught all on the fly I made out of the One Fly Mini Kit Little Dark Kebari Chris included with the rod. Thank you Chris for all your help!!

The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
