Wasn't there a song about you and this rod, Mad Duck?  Oh yeah, Carly Simon's "Anticipation!"

Ok, So I couldn't stand it. I mounted the big old gold reel on the new 8wt and strung it up to give it a test run in the grass. The rod casts like butter. Steve, with the slightly reduced grip circumference and the balance point where it is, the fit between rod and reel is perfect!

Nice looking pairing.

<Every single place that rod went, had guards keeping me from getting it.>

Oops!  Did I type that out loud?

What are you planning on using it for? Are there salmon where you live?

This rod is going to be a Bass rod and a rod to use at the coast for Stripers. We have some Kokonee Salmon in one mountain lake and they are stocking more elsewhere ,but thats it

Well, The rain has FINALLY stopped (mostly). It has rained here for almost 2 weeks now, with 2-3 sunny days mixed in, so I finally had a chance to get the new 8wt out today.

I caught one decent bass 1.5 lbs and one little guy on it.
