i had poppy send me a 462g esh head for my meiser 13'6,7,8 , with a grain window of 450-750 . might be the coolest thing to happen since i first picked up a 2h rod . sick !! 14' polys and long mono leaders will toss a big iron no problem . i also grabbed a 54' 8/9 here on sp for the same rod . headed to the river this am . i've never cast a line that long before . we'll see what happens . i'll report back.
funny thing , i was casting esh with a 3/0 iron and a huge carp sucked up the fly ! quite a battle .
thanks , jim
Listen to the river sing sweet songs to rock my soul ...
