Finally got the water conditions right yesterday and took my newly completed 686 out for a test drive on my local steelhead river here in the mountains along the California/Oregon border. As you already know it performed impeccably. Gave it a real test by using weighted flies, split shot and an indicator.
When he cast the rod the first time he just said, “Beautiful, this casts just beautifully” - "Amazed at the incredible artistry in wrapping this rod"
From the "Holy Shit" department:
Here's out buddy Pak from Singapore. Yes, that's quite a bend he has there in his Epic 580...
