Graywolf Rods Build #100 Giveaway

By my records it's been about two years since I first started trading emails and phone calls with Shane Gray of Graywolf Rods.  At the time he was a pretty serious fly rod builder of bamboo and graphite but hadn't really done much with fiberglass besides just a couple builds.  Shane's skills were clearly evident as a rod builder and I urged him to consider building on more fiberglass.  Surprisingly he listened and what started as Shane building on blanks from other makers has grown into exclusive blank offerings with his Yellow Glass Series and Signature S-Glass Series.  In short, Shane didn't just want to build fiberglass fly rods, he wanted to leave his mark.

Build #100 Begins

It's not every day that I am able to give away a $600 fly rod but Shane has graciously offered one of his 8' five weight Signature S-Glass Series builds for a month long contest as a thank you of sorts to the T.F.M. readership who he credits as the reason for his success as a builder of fiberglass fly rods.

Instead of posting a contest that was overly complicated, Shane and I opted instead to ask for an answer to the seemingly simple question...  

"Where would you take Build #100?"  

Do you have some special five weight water that this fly rod would be perfect for?  Do you have an upcoming trip which you'd carry it along on?  Tell us through words, photographs, or a video.

THE RULES
 1.  Answer the question "Where would you take Build #100?" by sending an email to tfmcontests@gmail.com.
