Suntech Keiryu Sawanobori 63 can throw poppers

First Sawanobori fish.

First Sawanobori fish.

There was a bit of a hatch on the lake and the bluegills and bass were rising.

I caught at least a dozen bluegills and a couple rock bass on a rubber legged popper.

Using a 20 foot #4.5 level line and a few feet of 5X tippet the Sawanobori 63 cast the popper beautifully and I could make it pop with just a flick of the wrist, holding the rod one handed.

I'm really enjoying this rod. Next outing to the lake I"m going to target the smallmouth and pike!

Here's a photo of my first Sawanobori fish.

"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.
