ten-weight tuesday

was out for a first serious tryout yesterday evening on the lake with a 9′ 10wt MSX Sapphire 1090 i have for review that should do the trick quite nicely for some nasty local pike !
first impressions are really good even if my way-out-of-shape shoulder isn’t too happy with swinging it and it’s 10 wt Versatile line and 25cm practice streamer for something like three hours… as noted in my Imago IPT review, any kind of serious conclusion needs time in hand and thought so the review will be out when the time is right and specially after a few of those nasty pike !
while goofing around trying to get some flying fly line images with one hand while casting with the other, this lucky shot of an unrolling leader managed to come out pretty much ok. getting leaders to show up on photos isn’t the easiest thing to do.
like a lot of things, it happens when you’re trying the least…
