43M Strikes Again............and again and again

by Rob Ruff
(Wichita Falls, TX )

Fishing around town with the Daiwa Kiyose 43M. Great rod, plenty of fish fighting power. The largemouths put a decent bend in the rod but were quickly subdued. The trout, although small, fought well and I was able to easily detect them taking the fly. I caught them at a community fishing lake which is stocked with trout during the winter months thanks to Texas Parks and Wildlife.

As age slows my pace, I will become more like the heron.


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