    I'm good with potluck too Gary. You could drive the bus and tell 3 or 4 of us (Seattleites) what to bring and we picnic (& flick sticks) in the park. Make it easy on yourself.
    (Someone is bound to take that the wrong way.)

    Favorite rod??? That's like asking me which one of my children I love more. I have 5 or 6 glass rods, 6 or 7 bamboo rods and more graphite than my wife needs to know about. I fish and enjoy each and everyone of them. It all depends on the size of fish, type of water and if I am in a boat or not. And I can't forget my mood.

    Like many others I'd pick Steffen's 8' 5/6 as the one rod i would keep; however my current favorite is Kabuto's 7'6 5 wt. It fishes like a beefed up version of Kab's 764, which it is. Excellent for smaller streams with brushy banks and overhanging trees holding large trout willing to take a streamer.

    Well I hope I love it. I just bought the same reel today to match to a 6" Hardy Brook rod I just bought as well. I am new to fly fishing in Washington State, but really enjoy stream fishing for trout and hope this will be an awesome set up.

    Thank you for helping the "newbie".

    That's a short rod. Most of the trout I catch are longer than that ;)
