John Brough Bamboo Rod

11th July 2010

Brought the Brough rod to try out the casting.

First, I put a #4 weight, WF line on it. Casted ok, but the feel wasn't what I would have liked.

Changed to a reel with a #4 DT line on and tried again. The feel was much more better. I could cast further with ease. A very smooth feeling.

Caught several temensis peacock basses.

The biggest was 1.5 pounds on the boga grip.

This one was caught at MacRitchie.

Caught this temensis on 26th December 2010 at BKE.

Look at the size compare with the little Fairy.

Patrick took this picture for me. I think it is a much better picture.
