Also wanted to let folks know that my friend Matt White, who makes custom fly rods under the name Rolling River Anglers, will be donating a fly rod to the 2014 Rocky Mountain Flyathlon. This past weekend down in Lake George, I fished a 7 ft. 2 wt. that he built, and it was pretty solid (see photo). Check out his Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Rolling-River-Anglers/160699747345) and let him know if you want him to build you a rod for the event.
FYI, Matt has been crushing mileage since last year’s event, and looks like a formidable challenger for the 2014 all-around title!
