I am excited to be part of this group, and to learn more about glass rods. As a member of the Big Water Spey Cult, I have sort of reached the outer limits of how far I can throw a skagit into the great beyond..... As the numbers of my beloved steelhead slowly (quickly?) sink toward an unknown end, I have returned at least partially to my first love; chucking dries and streamers on the Deschutes. I picked up a nice old Sage SP, which is all good, but fishing it I remembered the glass rods of my boyhood. Cruising the net, I discovered that glass rods have come a long way in my absence, and then I found this forum. Thanks for all the good info on here. I look forward to discussing the journey and the eventual capture of one of these glass beauties.
