Tested a new rod 4 1/2' UL build with a 308, for a kid giveaway today. Caught a few trout at a delayed harvest stocking. Some youngster is going to be happy.

Bill,
It's a part of a stream I fish, that is stocked early. The section is called delayed harvest, because their are certain times you can harvest fish from that section. Also artificial baits only. Looks like I'll get back this coming week, looks like a few nice days. Cabin fever is taking it's toll.

May your lines always be tight, Don

Hi Don,
Nice catch. Too cold for me to be out there right now. You're tougher than I am. Hope spring weather comes soon.
Best regards, Dennis2149

CDSAND7640 :sSig_thankyou:
So looking forward to finding kids, with interest in fishing. I have a friend that has been sending me lots of blanks, from broken 6 1/2 - 7' rods. They make very nice 4 1/2' ul trout poles, made a few i'd like to keep :sHa_yes: ,but their for the kids, I have 5 made now. I'll be putting a 204 or 308 with them. Been picking up these reels in bad shape, and bringing them back. This coming Saturday is mentor a kid fishing day in PA. I'll walk the stream near me and see if I can't give a couple away. Sometime the parent have a big a grin as the kids, when I give it to them.
Here's one i'll built today, finished the handle, and put it on the blank yesterday.
