Today is a special day! I know that it seems like your average Tuesday but it isn’t. You see after talking to a couple of folks I decided on a specific fly rod to purchase. It was on sale and this morning I found out there was also free shipping on rods and reels over at Cabelas (go check it out!).
So I finally made the decision, placed the order and in a few days I will be receiving my first Fly rod and reel combo! As I have heard a few say, I am crossing over to the dark side!
My rod is a 9’ 6 wt. four piece Cabelas Wind river Combo. Most of the reviews for it were positive. It’s regular price is $119 but it was on sale so I got it for a bit less than that. You add in my Cabelas club points and the free shipping and I would say I got myself a hell of a deal. I would brag on the reel a bit but honestly, I am just going off or marks word when he said it was a good deal! Haha
Anyway, I am hoping to receive it as of next week so I will keep you posted. Hopefully it gets here sooner! I feel like a Child on Christmas!
In some other news, Tomorrow I will go salmon fishing with my buddy Sean. Sean is a seasoned salmon angler so (I believe) he knows what he is doing! I will be up and out at 5:30 am so hopefully we will hook into something tomorrow. As always, I will keep you guys updated.
Here’s hoping that I meet another goal tomorrow and get into my first salmon ever!!
