    Chewed up a flat-wing sand lance (not a candlefish).:)
    From an undisclosed location in the Salish Sea.;)

    Gorgeous fish! You sure love those flatwings, although I think the cutthroat may love them even more than you do!

    Great looking cutt's Jack, but don't you think the Salish Sea might be a little too specific of a location?
    I'll bet somebody's on google maps looking for it right now. :)

    Nice fish Jack, and nice build as well. What is the fighting butt made of? I haven't seen that style before.

    Hi Steve,
    It is a wood turning. Helps keep reel away from bulky clothing and stand rod on ground while stringing up .

    Nice, unique addition Jack. I like it a lot, I have always added butts to all of my builds, for the main reason of keeping the reel off the ground. I didn't on my favorite build, a Sage SP+ 490, and I've always regretted it.

    Sometimes we hit it right. Today I got skunked and humbled . It hurt.
