    Late September in the Yakima Canyon. First fish caught on a 4wt. custom IMX from newoutdoors.com. Enticed him by stripping a Hale Bopp on a type 4 full sink across the seams, nice 16" fatty!

    Pretty cool to see bamboo flex like that! About what percentage of the total possible flex is that rod at in that pic? I know it would only be a guess....

    I have no idea, and gven the rod's age and value, not sure I ever want to find out. At a taped 20"+ (that's how far the ruler on my float tube goes), that was the largest fish I'd yet landed on cane so was a bit nervous about horsing it too much. I've since learned that bamboo rods (even old ones) are quite robust and have landed even larger fish without babying the rod.

    Well, we'll see if I did this right, it's my first attempt at uploading a picture. If all goes well, this is a Beaverhed Brown from this past June.
