Cane and Chrome

Hey guys,

I had posted this in a different section of the forum, but it only got a handful of views so I decided to move it. Moderators, I apologize if this is out of line.

I just returned home to Colorado from BC this afternoon. I spent about 3 weeks on the water and my 11'6" Bamboo Spey Rod and 3 3/4" reel saw a ton of action.

















Both the cane rod and the reel performed flawlessly and landed some great fish. The fish of the trip for me was this beautiful 39" buck.

Nice Mark! Rain or shine, you had the best looking rod and reel on the river. What kind of line and weight do you cast with that rod?
