First fish on Sweetgrass...

Every once in a while, I meet a person that I know will appreciate fine art. When that happens, I take them fishing, and hand them a Sweetgrass bamboo rod. Not long ago, I was pond-side with Vic, a guest at ol' Rock Crick Cattle Company. He had never fished bamboo, so we hit the trail looking for fishy water to try a Sweetgrass creation on. We found cruising Browns on nearby pond and were soon stalking and casting aquatic beetles to somewhat finicky trouts.

It's always interesting to watch someone who is used to casting mass-produced graphite, grab a Sweetgrass gem and toss bugs. Vic did a great job of waiting just a bit longer on his back cast, to shoot line effortlessly. "I really like this rod," Vic said on several casts.

"There we go!" Vic is hooked fast to a fat fish that refused to come shore-ward.

A full-flexing bend in a medium-actioned 6 weight! Vic is really putting the wood to this fine fishy, hoping to get some slime on his hands before his tippet pops!

And finally, Sweetgrass, Vic and a tubby Brownie come together for a splendidly spotted moment. :-)

Fish bites soft-hackle Hare's Ear, angler bites cushy cork. Life's better that way. Afterward, Vic smiles brightly upon catching his first fish on a Sweetgrass bamboo rod.
