With the excellent weather I hit the Little NF CDA River again.

Nice Cutty and a Montague Fishkill.

I will, but that's a long trip.

I go there for at least 3 days at a time, and a full week at the end of September.

I should be starting a new resto of a Montague Fishkill soon. It's going to be a gift for my former boss.  Pics up in the next few weeks.

Nice. My former boss doesn't fish, and if he did he would chuck bait. LOL.

Here is the Fishkill. The restored sections (blue tape is for varnish) are to the left of an original that I fish. Tip section (on the right) has 3 more guides than what the rods came with, which help them cast better. The guide spacing differences are, from what I can tell, from different manufacturing years.
