Lulbegrud Creek P.H. Young Perfectionist

The new rod has arrived!

After 8 years of watching Lulbegrud Creek rods on the internet, and coming close several times to pulling the trigger, I finally called Dave for the 3rd time and the order went in. For years I went back and forth on who I would order through, yet always coming back to Dave Cottengim. But then....what taper? Too many to choose from! This spring however, I finally settled on a PH Young 7'6' #4 Perfectionist. Well let me tell you that Dave's work is unbelievable, and the wait is finally over. 

I matched the rod with a Cortland Retro II reel, and a Cortland Classic 444 DT4 line. On the lawn, she casts deadnuts straight and as smooth as anyone could ask for. 

I can't say enough good about the rod. Dave is excellent to work with and his guidance was invaluable. It was a long wait, but well worth it.

See you on the water!
