Ian Millers Pack Freak
As many already know I got Ian Miller to build a custom pack rod for me. The requirements were.
Under 6ft total length
leader upto 20lb (helps with guide sizing)
Reel 1000 size shimano
Minimal simple looking
Ian came back with a list of a few blanks and the stats some sounded good other didnt (more trout rods in Ian words)
Over a few months of this and that a rod lands at my door step. WOW
This is a TRUE BASS PACK ROD, not a noodle like some 4pc rods. It has some tip but a heap of grunt to pull our bronze friends from the danger zone.
Ian sent me the reel seat to Marble the same way I do some lures. This was not a easy task but came out sweet if I do say so.
So how does it fish???????????????
Last night was the first chance to get out and give it a good testing. The conditions were just the way I like it. Rain, 30nts of wind and the Bar dropping.
Ended the night with close to 13 fish between Chris and I with some crackers.
