Here's a few pictures of the new rod I just put together. It is a 9'6" 8wt Rainshadow blank, with an American tackle titanium braided window reel seat with black graphite insert and black single foot guides. It will be my new lake run rod.

We went up for a Thurs and Friday trip this week and did pretty well. We hit one of my favorite streams on Thurs, and it seemed that the fish made their way up past this section. I only hooked a few here. We then later went upstream and found the pods we were looking for. We hit a couple more before dark, and called it a day. Friday, we went to a very popular stream that is usually very crowded. We got lucky with the weather, and there was barely anybody there. I ended the day with I think 9 fish landed, and a few more hooked. My buddy got a couple there as well. Almost every fish there was fresh chrome. Also, despite the cold weather, they still had a ton of energy and fought great. I also had a first in catching a car antenna. (no joke, look at the picture!) Here's the pics...
