6WT Smallmouth Fly Rod Build

I decided that I wanted a 6wt rod for fishing for smallmouth on the windy days here in Kansas. I did some looking around and found a blue fast action rod blank from Hook and Hackle.

It turned out to be a wonderful rod to cast. Matched with a 6wt Orvis Hyros Bass line it will blast out 60 ft of line like its nothing.
