(80' from the tip to the fly) now if I could just get my distance down and add 20 to 30' on my cast I could cover a wide range of water on the bigger rivers.

    Be back home mid March and be on the water Mon-Fri getting ready for BC and working on my distance casting. I should be able to fish most of the water with what I am casting now, but it doesn't hurt to be able to throw that extra 20'.
    This is such a fucking awesome thread.

    To get your hands on a Bob Clay rod...

    Spectacular!!!!

    This ain't no ordinary Spey.

    This guy guides and builds on the rivers that I dream about...

    These are field tested tapers and designs.

    That the rod flexes into the reel seat is just extraordinary shit!

    Good for you, Tobias.

    The only way for me to connect to the river is to fish a rod built by human hands, and by a builder that lives, breathes and makes his life on the river he's building rods for...

    Enjoy.

    That's a fine piece of tonkin cane you got there.

    Looking forward to seeing some fish porn with it.

    That is an absolutely stunnig Rod CTobias -- My god I just love the Look of a well built Bamboo Rod I also have a Great deal of respect for time and workmanship that goes into them -- Although I dont own a Bamboo and the few times I have fished with one, after the 2 to 3 hours of getting used to the slower action/casting and loading of the rod I really enjoyed fishing with them. I especially liked the way you feel the trout take the nymph throughout the length of the rod itself. It's definately a different and very enjoyable experience.

    Good lick with that beautiful rod

    How do you like it? After a year, how do you compare Bob Clay to James Reid?
