12.25.11 Merry Christmas...forget the kids-look what I got

     First, to all the clients and friends at The Average Angler Merry Christmas to you and yours! Christmas is all about the kids, but not here. I scored a nice Orvis 9 ft 7wt Hydros fly rod and Hydros IV reel! Of course the kids had a blast opening gifts, and giving them too, but I couldn't wait till the family split so I could go out and give it a try. I have to say I'm used to throwing that 10 wt with the Depth Charge line with weighted Clousers almost everyday, so, honestly, casting this 7wt in no wind was a mess. I better figure it out quick and get my game on before the end of January when I test for my FFF CI certification.
