I was pleasantly surprised to receive a TFO Professional 9' 8WT rod today from my parents. They knew I wanted one, but I had not asked them to get it for me for Christmas.
Thanks, Paula for helping them out! Dad said he talked with you about Dubbing, to keep himself from buying other stuff for himself. Can't wait to come in to outfit the rod. I tried the heaviest line I have on it, and it slings that 6WT line like crazy.
