RS, the 12'6" or 13'6" 7/8?

The 12'6" is a grand rod for smaller stream/flow/summer work.

The 13-6 is what's (delightfully!) called the "Fred Evans Special." This is the finest spey rod I've ever used; only one that's even a tad better than the 'Burkie' of the same size/line weight.

Should have added: the extra foot of rod length really makes a huge difference in the size/weight of fly's you can use, as well as the length of the casts.

NATE MEISTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jimmie and I had thought you'd dropped off the end of the WORLD!!!

Either you call one of us, or we'll have to 'kiddnap' you and DRAG you KICKING AND SCREAMING on to the river. To say we've both missed you would be the worlds greatest understatement!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So ... are you ready to start wetting some local lines?:devil: :devil: :devil: :smokin:

To add a 'PS' to this, Nate/wife-type and kids are some of the most wonderful young folk (keep in mind Jim and my age) you could ever, ever meet. With the Charity Spey Clinics he was one o the major 'facilitators' who really made this go. Give him a 'detail' to handle, you could forget the rest ... it was handled! Very, very cool young man.
fae!!
