Nissin Air Stage 190

by farmer

I received my 190 today and all I can say is WOW! This little rod is an absolute work of art. Beautiful blue/green sparkle finish, light action, only 4 sections, feather weight. I have come to prefer Nissin rods and own a few. I've got to say this will undoubtedly be one of my, if not the, favorite of the lot. I plan to fish for micros with it and will post results in the micro section. Can you tell I'm excited? Thanks Chris!

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.
