Testing of an interesting new rod

In summer-fall 2011 I was able to test an interesting new rod of the "trout spey" class.  The 3-4 wt 5-piece rod is lightweight (122g or 4.3 oz); it was made by a Russian firm Kola Salmon.  It could be also used with 5 or 6 weight single-handed lines.  I am using this rod with dry and wet flies, streamers, and nymphs.

New book on the flyfishing the Russian Far East

In 2007 I have published a book on the flyfishing the Russian Far East (in Russian).  For the last years I was working on the English edition of this 300+ page color book.  Finally the work is coming to the end.  I am sure that in 2012 it will be printed and offered to the readers.  How will it look?  I do not know it yet.  The cover of the Russian edition is below.
