Picked up a new/used Cabelas CGR fiberglass rod (5’9″ – 3 wt) at a recent gear swap at Bob Mitchell’s Fly Shop. It had a broken tip, but that was an easy fix. My homie Drew was building himself a new rod, and he was putting together an order, so, I had him add a new tip top guide to shopping list. The new tip top fit like a glove, and my new glass rod had a new life.

Since I already own a 3 wt rod set up I got years ago, I didn’t need to purchase a new line or reel for the glass rod. I’ll just use the reel for both rods, and that is A-okay with me. It actually fits the rod perfectly, and I was able to take it out right away to test it out on a local lake before all of the heavy weeds grew in.

|Bunch of crappie this size.|

It was a fun time out there with this rod, and I’m looking forward to using it more and more this summer. It’s crazy how much bend there is! It’s the perfect rod for the #icatchsmallfishtour
