Before Charlie departed for Denver on Saturday, he met me at the mercantile store to deliver a most delightful present.
It seems that the people at Cabela's made the decision to discontinue their Custom Glass Rods and upon learning this, Charlie decided to grab him one while the grabbing was good. He graciously grabbed me one too.
These sweet little rods could be picked up for a lark and they come complete with a hard case. Not a bad deal at all for less than $60.00. Charlie ordered two 7' 6" 5/6 weight rods.
In the parking lot, I put mine together just to have a feel. When I get a glass rod in my hand I often wonder why I jumped to graphite. Glass rods are sweet and that's just the simple truth of the matter.
I haven't decided yet whether to dedicate this rod to the pursuit of carp or to use it for a number of species. Chances are it won't really matter - it will be a sweet rod regardless.
