A little bit of GLASS
Went to my first pawn shop last night (waiting for my TO GO dinner to get ready) and found a Fenwick 5' 3' 4/5 weight glass rod. Shook it a few times and thought, I can see where this will come in handy. The price was fair considering this looks like it has never been used, plus they don't make these anymore.
I brought it home and after eating dinner, I went out to cast it. Found that the DT 5 SYLK and the Triangle Taper 4wt worked the best on this little stick. I was picking up 50' of line to recast with ease! You do have to slow and WAIT on that back cast, moreso than with my 7' glass or even my boo, but WHAT A BLAST!
