I drove down to a little wild bow stream about an hour to my south. It was cold as I started ... about 36 F but it warmed up to the 50's and sunny by 10am. The new rod casted nice and didn't fall apart so that was nice. I got a bunch of these little buggers on a 18 olive pheasant tail dropper and one on the EHC dry. Fun day.

First Fish on the new rod:
