: Got a new rod...

Well, I've been looking for a slightly longer/heavier/stiffer rod for casting sink tip lines and stumbled across a great deal so I had to pick it up. I have a 2 piece Orvis Superfine 7'6 4 wt full flex 4.0 that has been my freshwater stream/river rod for a few years now and I love it. While looking for a rod that could better handle the sink tips, I found another Superfine for $160 ($175 w/shipping), this one a 4 piece 7'11 4 wt full flex 5.5. For that price I couldn't let the fly shop hold onto it.

Now I just have to wait for my wife to yell at me when it comes in the mail. And the search for the other rod is going to have to wait another year for another season of bonuses/tax returns. :)

I like Orvis Rods, I have a 4wt TLS and a 5wt TLS, both are mid flex.

I tried it out last week and it handles the sink tips a little better than my other Superfine. All in all another sweet casting rod!

My wife didn't yell at me either. She just asked how much it cost and then told me about the clothes she ordered that she hadn't told me about. :D
