My birthday is June 28th......

AND....

I am getting a TFO Signature 9' 8wt rod(Temple Fork Outfitters Signature Series Fly Rods) and TFO Prism 7/8 reel(TFO Prism Reel)...

I plan on putting Rio Gold line on it with Rio Skagit tips...

I decided on a 1 hand rod because I plan to fish it on smaller rivers/creeks and shouldn't need extra distance from a 2 hand spey over a 1 handed spey cast.. once I learn how too until then roll cast is my best friend...

Now it is just a countdown to when I get to go buy it... the final countdown has started... might be able to get it tomorrow might have to wait a month....

You are going to have fun with that rod. All spey cast are just a form of roll cast so you should be in good shape. You can even use forms of those cast on your five weight. So if you want to get a headstart and have a couple of those cast down before you get your rod let me know we can hit the Sandy. You will have them mastered in about five minutes or so.

Very nice! I am hoping to pull the trigger on something but...I know casting lessons are what I need more than new gear....but....
Enjoy and give us a report on how you like the set up.

Man, I need to get an eight weight. My 5 weight is really starting to leave me with an empty feeling when I hear about folks pulling out salmon and steelhead every weekend.

Man, I need to get an eight weight. My 5 weight is really starting to leave me with an empty feeling when I hear about folks pulling out salmon and steelhead every weekend.

No you don't! Check out this video I found of a guy catching a 5lb. steelhead on a WW Griggs 3WT.

Now that looks like a lot of fun.:clap::lol:

That is awesome.

I have got into a few biggies on smaller rods, but never landed them. Good on him.

Now, to address your signature: Fly fishing is the only serious fishing.
