New rod, new reel and new fly line
I took my Thinkfish, Bold semi automatic fly reel to the Meer in Central Park for a try out. I matched it with a new 3 piece, 11 foot, 2/3 wt fly rod. on my second cast I hooked this bass. The reel worked well. It has a large arbor and retrieves line quickly.
The Meer in Central Park sits in the north east corner of the park at 11oth street. Its one of my favorite lakes in the city. Easy to reach by subway and has a variety of fish.
