Saturday's Rod in action sequences

The BOBFS meet the Eiffel Tower at France

Some days ago I had the pleasure to send one of my rods to France. This one a CF683SE 3/2 was my first rod to this beautiful country. I received the following comments and pictures.

CF683SE 3:2(France).jpg

A thing for which I could not await was to put my
little Hardy Featherweigh on and cast it. I did that
for a while this affternoon ... in my building
underground car park :
very, very nice feeling. My old Dubos silk DT3 load
perfectly the rod. With an almost parallel cast (cause
the ceiling is rather low) 45' of silk were easily out
of the reel. The capacity of the rod to maintain silk
well right during the back cast is impressive. The
action is soft and accurate, and I guess a good
reserve of power in this little jewel.
River fishing is unfortunately closed since two weeks,
but I think I could't resist to try it in a private
pond soon.

Best regards from Paris


Some compliments

Hi Marcelo,
At first grand bravo to your Pumas ... supposed to be an amateur team !
Well, I don't get tired of watching your casting video ... a great lesson too, I'm going to spend my winter time lawncasting and trying to get your elegance.
Now, a few words about our business relationship :
What can I said or else that all was perfect : your reactivity to my mails and questions, the rod shipped as soon as you receive my payment... and finally when the rod arrive, the surprise to uncover the gorgeous tube witch go with.
After my first underground casts image I lawn cast your rod in our Burgundy's second home. After watching you, I really need to improve my double haul style but yet, I easilly put 60'+ of line out of the reel. The power of this marvelous toy is quite incredible. Sure, 70' casts aren't the right job for this rod, but it can do it when you ask it. At a fair distance, I land my fly where I want even in windy condition, as it was when I try it.
You know, I keep your rod in my office in Paris and when things dont go well, I make some coffee and put it out of its bag to have a look. Beautiful things seems to have a secret power...

Best regards from Paris


Jean Louis, thanks for your kind words. Pictures are wonderful. I will made a casting video in the following days hope you like it.
