I was wondering the same thing, but from the pictures it looks like a Redington Crosswater Rod and Reel

thanks, it was a definite change from the 5/6 I'm normally slinging around and taking some getting used to. Got rained out today, but tomorrow is looking good thumb

Windy, scattered showers, and tornadoes didn't stop me from getting an hour on the water!



Case slipped dangit



This one didn't want to quit, gave us quite a show jumping all over the place.

TreeBass where are you at? Sporting the high and tight like that makes me think somewhere around my in the FT Hood area, but the waters don't look familiar.

Wind laid down today, and storms coming in tomorrow with a 200% of wetness and thunderboomers...So I got out for what could be my last time for a while.

Only caught 4 this evening, all LMB, and finally got one that put me on the reel!!





This one took it all and put me on the reel. First time for the 4wt and boy was that fun!! banana



finished off with another nice one



Nice and relaxing evening

Fun stuff catching them on a 4 weight. Been wanting to try a short - 5' 4 weight that I got for kayak fishing for white bass. Was able to try it out Sunday. Mainly trolled a tandem rig crappie jig and tube fly but did get a few casts in to fish boiling on the surface. Fun times... Video of the action.
