8' 6'' 5 weight

Here is a photo of a 8' 6'' 5 weight I have just finished. I built it on a Batson Rainshadow 7+ I love these blanks. The guides are titanium and the real seat is box alder. It is weighted perfectly for a light reel my Hardy Angel 3/4 weight even balances it nicely.

Fall Fishing

I have been having a lot of luck on the Ausable and Saranac rivers the water is clear, the temp is in the low 50s and the level is perfect. I have seen a few October Caddis but have mainly been fishing nymphs and streamers. The fish have been aggressive attacking big zonkers and bunnies often before the streamer has a chance to sink more then a few inches.

October so far

The Ausable has been way to high for most fishermen this past week. I have managed to take a few clients to some local spots with some luck. Mostly with streamers and heavy nymphs. I also have been able to get out on my own a few times here are a few pictures of a nice brown I caught on a size 6 Zonker.
