Some photos of the fish I've caught with this rod. Plenty of backbone for fishing deeper water, 3 feet or more. I used a glass bead kebari and a nickel finish brass bead kebari for these fish. I caught one 12" rainbow which put somewhat of a bend in the rod. This rod is definitely more suited to larger fish. I plan on taking this rod to Bozeman MT in September for my trip there.

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.
