GLASS N' GILLS

The CGR 7'6" 5/6 



A chance to walk the banks and toss bugs seemed like a good time to dust off the 5/6 CGR, my favorite of the CGR line. And tossing a WF6F Orvis Warmwater taper it proved once again why it is I like this rod so much. This rod just flat out shoots line.  This is the one rod in the CGR line that is perfectly capable of being an "all-around" rig for somebody looking for a one rod glass option.

The Gills were on-point with plenty of big bulls willing to out-hustle the bass for a sizable meal which always seemed too large for their mouths. I think there were only 2 or 3 dinks caught the entire evening.




The bass were willing to play along as well though, with the regulars always plentiful and a few decent fish looking up. 

The night was a little different however, with all the fish out in open water and virtually zero takes anywhere near the edges or in vegetation.



All-in-all just a relaxing evening throwing hair and foam at willing fish.
