And the winner is...

Congratulations to Timothy H. for submitting the name "Ichthus" to my contest. Timothy is an active participant on the board.  Ichthus means fish in Greek and is the fish symbol you see on the back of cars and other items.  My reels will be engraved with this name and will come in 3/4, 5/6, and 7/8 weights right now with a limited amount in 9/10 weights.  They should be arriving from my manufacturer in the next 6 weeks.  Keep posted for more updates on new products and other changes for "Risen Fly".

Below are the details of the "Ichthus" reel series.
