Last weekend I was fishing on a small Catskill feeder stream to the Esopus. I caught and released 6 small Brookies using my Orvis Superfine glass 7' 3wt. I love these series rods. I also own the 8' 5wt in which I landed a 21" Brown on the Esopus Memorial Day.

Nice!
I like the way fiberglass bends. Much easier yet still very strong as the material has a 'long' reserve

This guy put a nice bend in my 5 weight Hollowell.

Yesterday I fished my Steffen 8'6" 5-6 wt. rod built by Insitu Rodsmiths. A black Bunny Leech was the fly of the day. With today's rain I think it was a good decision.

The 3 Best of the day

All fish returned unharmed.

Absolutely! I've been using fiberglass for years.. In fact, a couple of my favorite rods I received from fellow member Corlay (Hello Corlay, long time no see. Happy Holidays!).. When I'm not using glass, I turn to bamboo.. It's a rare day that I use grrrrraphite..
