Lampros in Belize
Back in the early fall, my wife and I were fortunate enough to spend our honeymoon at El Pescador lodge in Belize. Words can't really do the experience justice; Everything from the food to the staff to the fishing was truly exceptional. As an added bonus, I got to play with one of the new H2 rods. I'd say it was up to the task, as it helped me bag my first ever bonefish and permit on our first day en route to a saltwater grand slam! The rod was crisp, easy loading, and remarkably forgiving when my knees and timing buckled at the sight of a feeding fish. Despite the success of our first day, even the H2 couldn't save me on our second day out as I failed to convert any of 5 shots at big permit, which has left me longing for a return.
Since then I've been playing with the rod on my home water, putting it to the test against some big, angry trout. It seems to be holding up just fine.
