"In matters of style, swim with the current; In matters of principle, stand like a rock!"
- Thomas Jefferson
I've built up a small inventory of various blanks over the years with the hopes of finding the time to actually build a few for myself. Finding the time is difficult, but I do manage to get a couple out every now and then. I was really anxious to get this one whipped up as it comes with a bit of notoriety and internet fan fare. Matt Draft of Proof Fly Fishing has done a fine job of formulating a blank modulus that is an absolute dream to cast. If this blank casts this amazing...I can't wait to build the Vivant (7'6" 3wt) I've got waiting in the rack! I equipped the Aurora with RIO Trout LT Camo/Beige WF4F Fly Line and was casting a size 16 dry fly onto a paper plate at 50 feet without issue. There's nothing unusual about this blank and this is a huge benefit. Its predictable and doesn't take long to understand the casting tempo and driving power it prefers to be manipulated with. If you haven't already guess it, I'm a fan. Matt hit this one out of the ballpark!
With this rod, the adventure ends, but another awaits my attention....
