    Tried out my latest creation on a Great Lakes Trib this past week with great success. It's a 10 Ft. 8 Wt. switch rod built on a St Croix SC III blank, Struble U15 HG seat, and custom turned grip made with rubberized cork, exotic burl, flor cork, and natural burl.
    Had a fantastic run of fresh Coho's, and managed to land an energetic male on a beadhead estaz egg pattern that I tied. Enjoy!

    nice coho! Strange that they don't turn red down there like the kings don't
