Tomorrow I'll be taking this fishing rod out for a spin. It's the 2011 version of the Topwater Special. We have made it slightly shorter and of course added the .50 tip guide. Handling is excellent and the fishability is superb. Combined with a great fishing reel like the Qualia NLF 30 it is a wonderful piece of gear to put up against big fish. Of course I'll be using my fishing kayak the W500 from Wavewalk. I'll also be testing a new color DOA shrimp, more on that later and a super new spinner from a custom maker in Jacksonville FL. A clue it's already tied on the line in the shot.
