New Fly Rod (Early Christmas Gift)

Recommended Posts

I recieved a little bit larger than expected Christmas Bonus (meaning larger than $0, which was what I received the last 3 years), so I decided to splurge on a new Fly Fishing outfit as an early Christmas gift to myself. Here is my new G Loomis NRX 10' 4wt., Lamson Remix, and Cortland Finesse Fly Line. I have Rod Wrap on the grip (which I really think sets off the aesthetics of the rod) and Coral Blue sleeve that Lamson sells to "customize" your reel. I am rather pleased with how everything turned out. Now I just have to see if those wild Brown Trout like it as much as I do.

At least it's not one of your nice custom grips!

Hahaha...I promised Scott that I wouldn't cover up the handle on the custom Sage One he made for me (which is the only rod I own that doesn't have the Rod Wrap on it). I even sent him proof that I didn't wrap it...

I feel better now. At least there's ONE rod in his collection without the tape!

Mmm.  I am just starting to pick up my fly rod again, and I am trying to move to PA to live and work, once my surgeries are over.  With fish like that, I AM LOOKING you up when do!

 

Great catch!!

Actually, that is not a big Steelhead. We caught probably 30 that day around that size give or take a few inches.

Depending of where you move in PA, you could be close to arguably the greatest collection of trout fishing streams in the country (and being Limestoners, they never freeze in the winter, which means year round fishing!)
