I recently acquired a Nissin Air Stage Honryu 380. I took it out this past Sunday to a little utility ditch located behind a bank. Fished for about an hour or two. Love the rod. I was using a #3 Sunline with 5x fluorocarbon tippet and the rod made casting easy. Even though I caught some small fish the rod had plenty of sensitivity to detect the strikes. I'll be taking the rod to New Mexico this weekend and to some trout waters. I'm certain it won't have any problems handling them!

“The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten” - Benjamin Franklin

"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.
