Crossed something off of my bucket list

Catching a trout on a fly I tied myself off of a rod I built myself. Still lots to do with my tenkara/fly rod hybrid. But it worked so far. A little fine tuning and hopefully one more test before I finish it.

I like that. Nice wrap on the handle.

Added a few nicer brookies on Saturdays trip. I honestly think I am the only person who fishes that stream. Love this rod and it is quickly becoming my favorite.
