Hi, I am new member that has been getting deeper into small streams in mid-Atlantic over last few years. Been using a 7'6" Orvis Superfine glass rod and love it, but noticed for some areas really wanted smaller rod.
In mid-Jan. took possession of a new C. Barclay Blue Ridge Special (med-light action), 6'8", 4-piece, 3wt rod paired with a Kineya Model 300 reel spooled with 406 DT-3, which I added Appalachian Mountains Furled 3' leader.
Haven't had to time to fish on appropriate mountain stream yet but next week the stars should line up and hopefully rain abates. Here is pic Chris sent prior to rod going out. I have had out in local pond playing around and this thing is soo sweet, smooth and loads so nice. Chris was great guy to work with and highly recommend him if your looking for custom.
