Looking forward to fly fishing for salmon this fall on the Pere Marquette River. Looking forward to seeing the same old crew in Baldwin. Geared up and ready. I bringing my new 7/8 WCX rod and net...FISH ON !
Just wanted to share with you how pleased I am with the purchase I made from you on eBay. A little over a week ago, I finally had the opportunity to try out my 5 wt W&C bamboo rod on a private ranch in Northeast California. While it was not my first cast (on water), it was my second that produced this beautiful Lost Creek Rainbow on a size 16 Callibaetis Dun during a hatch of the same.
While not a flattering picture of myself, I needed a way to get a picture of the fish and the rod together. This one measured in at 19” and 5 minutes later I landed a second fish that measured 21. My buddy had already kicked his way to the other side of the small lake, so unfortunately I failed to get a picture of that one. He also said that I now need to get a “cool, classic” reel… one more fitting of a bamboo rod than the reel I was using.
Anyway, I am now looking forward to fishing the 7 ft 4 wt, but that may have to wait until next year as I do not have any small creek trips planned at this time (this year)… but who knows… I may have to make the time!
Needless to say, I am a very satisfied customer and have a new appreciation for bamboo!
"Went down and picked up the rod... wow.. this is really nice and I dont know much about the maker.. but I will look it up.. I made a great pruchase.. this rod goes with me tonite to colorado to do some small stream fishing.. will let you know how it performed.!!! thanks again"
