8wt fly rod tested

Over this past weekend I received an email from Braden about the 8wt rod I built for him. It seems that he’s giving it a good test on the steelhead running the creeks and rivers of western New York.

His description of the rod action was “It’s got the right whip and supple enough to drop the small nymphs in where I want them. And it slows down the big boys.”

I’m glad to see he’s back out catching them after his loss with the fire. Keep it up!

If anyone is interested in one of these rods email me at donbowley@gmail.com.
