First time and lovin' it
(Greenfield, Indiana USA)
First, thank you for selling the equipment/tackle that you do. I received the Nissin Sasuke 5ft rod and it is fantastic. Within thirty minutes I was at the small ditch that runs down the side of the property. I have always seen small fish in it and you sold me the equipment to hook them. I had a 2LB tippet with a #20 fly hook and a Owner float. I used pieces of baloney and they loved it. For my line I used 4LB fire line. They say it is a 1LB diameter, looks a little bigger than that but it seemed to work well.

"Be sure in casting, that your fly fall first into the water, for if the line fall first, it scares or frightens the fish..." Col. Robert Venables 1662
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.
