  3. Who built the boo's? Tell me about them.
    Those sure looks to be righteous set-ups. Why both left and right retrieve?

    RB Meiser 909 highlander paired with a ross cla. Add a 700 grain line and it can throw 10 inch musky flies to the other side of the bay.

    Those pictured are both Wes Cooper rods out of Fremont. One bottom is a light little four-weight, the other a longer five. I also have two others (a five and a stout six) from a buddy, Kirk Brumels, of Holland.

    Funny you mentioned the reel. Those are both Orvis CFOs and since it wasn’t strung-up through the guides in the top photo, I never knew it was backwards. Happens to me all the time!!
