Broke in new rod and reel.
It has been slim pickings for me lately, but this morning I took my new T & T rod out for an inaugural run this morning (they are discontinuing discounting their Horizon II rods 40%). Caught this nice fat 27” red this morning on a crab fly. He swerled about three rod lengths away at 9:00 and ate it on the second bump. Thought I had it on video, but must have hit the button twice and I ended up turning it off.
