Raine Bamboo Fly Rod

Hi Chris:

Your rod arrived yesterday, just in time for me to load it in the car and leave for the East Branch. When we arrived, I put a line on it, and you were right, absolutely casts beautifully, and shooting line and distance is not a problem. Then it was off to the river on a cool June night with not a lot of hatching. Around 8:30 a few pale evening duns began, and at about 8:45, I rose and land this 18/19 inch brown on a #16 PED spinner, algae and all. Not a bad way to initiate your rod. And no trouble tiring this fish out. Finally I have two rods, both from you that, cast well, fish well, and can handle large fish, traits that I never found in cane rods before! So thanks for making it for me and when my friend tries it, hopefully he will be in touch. 
 
Best regards,
 
Tony
