Green is my second favorite color.  So, I like this one, too.

Great build.

That is the most popular size / weight of fly rod here in the UK. Mostly used on stocked rainbows. No I don't understand either.
Cheers,

And here I was thinking either light blue or dark blue was your second favorite, followed by medium blue.
Green is one of my favorite colors as well, I don't really have a favorite color it just kind of depends on what some of my preferred colors are on to make me choose one over another.

I'm not that specific.  Blue encompasses the entire range, from Sky Blue to Medium Blue.  Once the blue is dark enough to be mistaken for black, I start losing interest.
