. . . but playing with a delightful 1 weight was a blast! I made-up a twisted leader for it - turns-over nice. It was a refreshing break playing with a 2-1/8 oz. rod sporting a tiny CFO I reel for a change. I was even able to cast into a light breeze & I managed to boom-out a couple 30-footers. 'Gills were non-existent, but a carp grabbed a micro leech - that was exciting for the few seconds it took me to point the rod at it, clamp the spool & pop the tippet. Sacrificing a fly made better sense than sacrificing my Superfine. It was a glorious, cool morning in my old Wood River float tube (I packed it in to a small backwater that I haven't visited in years - used to be able to drive close to it before the Feds regulated & fenced-off things to the point that folks can't hardly access public land along the Columbia anymore.).
