Hey, Just wanted to pass along what I hope is nice for you to read.
My name is John La Haye, I purchased a grasshopper green 5wt from
Willow and Cane last month. I REALLY LIKE this little green rod. I have been fly casting here in Colorado as a native and casting salt water for stripers from Nantucket to Key West. The 5wt that I purchased was going to be the new "keep in the car " rod. Was going to be. I have been teaching a young friend how to fly fish. We have worked with several of my rods and I have seen him come along nicely. On Sunday the 30th of May I had him work with my 5 wt.
We were having some thunderstorm activity around and the wind with it, but
Jim was working 25-35 yards of line like he had been born to it. Better than with my big name Orvis and St. Croix rods. I just bought another 5wt graphite from you that I think might be the "stay in the car " rod, we'll see.
Thanks for building a rod like the one(s) that I have.
I almost feel guilty for the purchase price, La Haye
