A Few Non-fishing Pics from the Morning Walk

Last week I decided to build a 9 ft. 4-piece 4 wt. graphite fly rod for use in some of the smaller trout streams. Instead of ordering the components individually, I checked around and decided on a rod kit from J Stockard.  They’re having a sale on their rod building kits, and the entire order […]
