    I'm good with potluck too Gary. You could drive the bus and tell 3 or 4 of us (Seattleites) what to bring and we picnic (& flick sticks) in the park. Make it easy on yourself.
    (Someone is bound to take that the wrong way.)

    Favorite rod??? That's like asking me which one of my children I love more. I have 5 or 6 glass rods, 6 or 7 bamboo rods and more graphite than my wife needs to know about. I fish and enjoy each and everyone of them. It all depends on the size of fish, type of water and if I am in a boat or not. And I can't forget my mood.

    Like many others I'd pick Steffen's 8' 5/6 as the one rod i would keep; however my current favorite is Kabuto's 7'6 5 wt. It fishes like a beefed up version of Kab's 764, which it is. Excellent for smaller streams with brushy banks and overhanging trees holding large trout willing to take a streamer.

    Well I hope I love it. I just bought the same reel today to match to a 6" Hardy Brook rod I just bought as well. I am new to fly fishing in Washington State, but really enjoy stream fishing for trout and hope this will be an awesome set up.

    Thank you for helping the "newbie".

    ......Mark

    That's a short rod. Most of the trout I catch are longer than that ;)
