Chris...the Kurenai 30 rod I just received is everything you said it would be. From the moment I first touched it, I felt an incredible connection with the entire rod and line. It was magic! It moved like it was being directed by mind alone and because of the complete lack of weight (.9oz) it isn't there. I had always wanted a super-light rod for the smallest of clear waters regardless of the size of fish. Your rod is it. Thanks as always, Will Forehand.

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.
