I got home from work last night ... and found a shipping tube on my kitchen table.  Opened it and saw a beautiful, VERY light fly rod in a pretty, blue sleeve.

As soon as I have good sunlight, I'll be taking some pictures!

Hope you enjoy it bud. I'm thinking it should be a nice fit for those big gills you catch right in between needle and Longclaw for length.

I now have four fantastic rods from Steve.  In order of receiving them:

  1. "I love you" ... my first rod, a 5'6" 3 weight.  The words are from her to me, since she gifted me the money to buy the rod ... and from me to her for the same reason.  Also, now nicknamed "Needle".
  2. "8 wt" ... one of Steve's generous deals.  A custom fly rod for the price of a store bought production rod.
  3. "Longclaw" ... Steve's response to our shared appreciation of the "Game of Thrones."
  4. "Night King" ... also a reference to GoT, for those of you who don't know.

Needle is my favorite rod ... for now.  I can hardly wait for a chance to wet a line with Night King.

Boy I'm sure glad you clarified the "I Love You" rod ahead of time 🤣

Yeah, I thought about that!  😄  BIG difference between, "Love ya, man." and "I love you".   😆
