Getting line and probably a reel for it this weekend. Very good rod, so I'm thinking a Lamson Konic reel, which is about the best I can afford. Very eager to get on the water to try it out. The rod is specifically designed for my primary quarry using the kinds of flies that I usually throw on the kind of rivers I usually fish.

I was hoping to go over to Goose Creek for a little wading just to give it a dry. Cold air and high winds kept me away.

It's close to home. I may give it a try on Saturday or Sunday. I picked up a reel for the new rod, but I haven't gotten the leaders the guy who gave me the rod recommended yet. I may use some standard leaders just to get out there and give it a go with the new rods. That's right. When I was shopping for the new reel I came across a deal on a rod that I couldn't pass up. Fishing weather for me better get here soon or I'm going to go broke buying tackle. And now my six year old says she wants to try flyfishing. I think I'm going to let her use my St. Croix 8' 5 weight before spending more money getting her a rod of her own.
