Steelhead on Hollow built 4 wt. bamboo fly rod!

Les B. picked up his Raine Hollowbuilt bamboo fly rod from me last week  on his way up to the Rogue River in Oregon.  He sent me the following picture of one of the STEELHEAD he brought to hand on my 4 weight Model 99 Special.  The blank weighed under 2 ounces when I built it!

“I picked up my new 99 Special last Saturday from you. As my friend and I told you we were headed to the the Rogue to fish with Jack and Kurtis from the Fishing Hole. Attahced are several pictures of a fish we estimated was near 10 lbs. I was using the 4wt “99 Special” with a 5x tippet and a Madam X dry.”  Les B.
