6ft 3wt

So I have a little 6 foot 3 wt rod I had kinda forgotton about. I bought a 3wt line the other day and strung it up today. Did not put nearly enough backing on it but somehow that seems ok as I doubt I will be catching fish on it that will be taking me down to the backing anyhow. I think possibly tommorow depending on the weather I may be having a bash at one of the Kelvin tributories……I will wait and see if their is any more rain ……..if there is not then with a bit of luck it should have cleared by then…..if there is then I will be wandering about looking like a trumpet..
To connect the fly line to the backing I used the Albright Knot which I must say is much easier than the needle knot………which to be honest in my fumbling hands turns out crap. The fact that I now have my 3 wt in action means I can lend my 4/5 weight out to guests who want to go fishing……a lot of the people I know who want to have a bash at the Kelvin I think always fish far too heavy. I am not sure whether it is just a preference thing though…

ahhhh too dream…………
