East Coast - Ken Abrams blank 1st time out

Last winter I picked up a Ken Abrams 10.5' 6 weight blank (author of Striper Moon for all you Striper fisherman) and decided to make it into a switch rod. Still trying to zone in on the best line for it. The 6 weight Ambush at 235 grains was fine overhead, and decent spey casting with lighter flies, but could not turn over a big articulated bunny fly that well.

The looks I got from the 8x tippet size 28 nymph crowd as I cast and caught fish were priceless ....
