For Christmas I was a good boy. I had a Greencaddis Ruby River 7' 8" 4wt under the tree. Since the temprature was on the mid 40's I grabbed the reel for my 4wt bamboo and went out to play in the yard.
This fiberglass rod is full flex but yet has enough backbone to shoot a respectful amount of line. I have the feeling this will be a real nice dry fly rod on the trout streams I fish. It will also do nicley for bluegill. Not sure about smallmouth, we will have to give it a go.
