Kevin's First Fish On The Kabuto

Do you remember the post from earlier in the week of Kevin Stull's eight foot five weight Kabuto Rods build?  Well, he had a chance to get out on the water and broke it in right on a mix of native cutthroat and rainbow trout on the Yakima River.

Kevin wrote...  "Here is one of the beautiful Westslope Cutthroats I landed today on the Yakima River.  We were fishing only dries all day long.   I landed about eight cutthroat and two rainbows with about the same in long distance releases.  What a first outing for my new Kabuto build.  I was using a five weight Wulff Long Belly Line which is a perfect match for the rod."

Officially jealous and that Saracione Mark IV reel looks like the perfect compliment to your build.
