I have recently aquired a Fenwick Black Nighthawk 12' 6" #8/9 and would be very grateful for any advice or comments (good or bad) on this rod. I am a fairly experienced fly angler but a total novice at spey techniques.
I've casted that rod and for the money it's a bargain. In Sweden that rod retails for about 80 quid. It's got nice cork and a good looking reel seat. It's a bit stiffer in the butt section than I'm used too. But then again I swing a Sage GIII or a Scott G1409. It's not a big river rod but will do sweetly for smaller runs.
