Switch Rod- Endeavor and TU Fly Box Donation

Floatfisher took a new leap over the weekend by purchasing a new Switch Rod to set up and learn to
cast over the next year. Although I am very late to the game, it seems this is the "new" hot thing to do on
the larger rivers? Tried it once on the Green, although most of the time the line was around my neck,
the time I did get the line out, I was casting damn near all of it. It was cool, and man could you mend with 
that extra two plus feet of rod.  Should be fun, looking forward to getting this set up and taking a few casting lessons.

Can't wait to post the first photo's of fish on the rod! You all will be the first to know.

The winter season is also a time that many hit me up to tie boxes of flies for the many TU and FF chapters around the area, it is my way of giving back a little to the groups to raise much needs monies for stream and other work the fine groups do. I certainly get a lot of satisfaction auctioning of these boxes of flies and
meeting the fine folks who purchase and use them to catch many fish, something there first few?
This box along with some art work will be going to the Colorado State Chapter TU for the
March Auction.
