And so it begins :-)

Today's my birthday, my wife got me what I asked for- a Redington Rise 9/10 (in a cool green color they  call Mantis) and a WF9F line to get me started, I'll have a PacBay Rainforest II blank any day now to start my build. 9ft 9wt 4pc, Ti frame Zirconium guides, carbon fiber full wells grip, I'm so excited! 

I got a Bass pro card too so I'll get some fly tying stuff from there, I'm completely new to fly!

I'll post progress as I move along, I'm all ears for any tips or suggestions! Background- I'm in Southwest Georgia, have largemouth bass accessible but this one is being built for salt inshore primarily, Redfish (Florida gulf panhandle and Georgia Coast around St Simons Island) and it's going to go to Alaska next July with me for sockeye, maybe a king if I'm lucky.
