Nice work, Tyler! That build came out great. Have you strung it up and fished it yet?

took it out yesterday afternoon on the stream it was built for.  Water was waist high right off the brushy bank and I had maybe 12 feet of working room before topping my waders.  Still working on getting a feel for the timing of the rod, but think the slightly heavier skaggit tip in the mail will help.  I did manage a decent brownie, first trout of the year.  Forget the camera in the truck though.  About the time my legs started numbing up I took a walk back to get a camera, but no more fish.

Congrats on the first trout of the year! Did you get it with a streamer and sink tip?

yes, I was fishing a 225 grain head with sinking leader on one end and a mono running line on the other, swinging a black beadhead bugger.  Take was on the strip back upstream.  About 18".  Put a great full bend in the glass rod!
