So, thought i'll get back after the rod building was done.
So, my 6'6" 3 piece 3wt rod has gotten some fishing experience.
I must say it's a total pleasure, spin fishing with glass. When trying an carbon rod first time after month of glass the impression was carbon = dull.
I have not yet gotten into any advanced cast technique (which would probably take years). But it's enjoyable to use the rods power. There was no problem to play a northern pike of 4,4 lbs.
I also found a cheaper blank on the big auction site, a 6'7" #3, 4 piece which ended up a birthday gift for my brother, must i say, i suspect he will never use his carbon rods again.
My next project will be a 2# or 1# and about 6' if i can get my hands on a nice blank in europe.
