Finally caved in and picked up a new rod. I've been working with rods in the medium to medium/fast my whole life and wanted something that could handle the (G..D.. F...ing) beach wind better. This should do the trick.

Congrats.
Never fished one, but have heard nothing but good things about those sticks.
Now let's hope this summer we get the opportunity to put a bend in some 6 wts off the beaches.

Between this and the new Suburban, you're mad money jar must be getting low. Never cast the 3s, but lots of good reports about it. Have fun.

Is the reversed cone on your clousers to move more water?
Yessir. The flies currently in my tin are stuff I tied up for winter blackmouth last year. There's not a ton of info out there about fly fishing for them off the beach but a common theme I read was flies that push a lot of water are good. With that in mind I tied up a bunch of crazy shit including reverse cones, propellers, and this monstrosity. I actually hooked two fish on this one so I know it wasn't a total waste
