    Just saw this from the FB, Mark's bamboo looks fantastic and now it looks like a great casting rod too.

    Great 'watch, even better if you go to 'full screen.'

    Indeed!

    BTW Fred, if you got any chance to test Steve's glass rod, please post here and let us know how that feel.... I am really itchy about glass switch rods!

    OH SOOOOOO YES! A total 'CrakerJack' as a switch with a poly leader and lightly weighted fly. Rod's 'rated,' Steve's best guess, as a 6/7 and casts a dream. Total hoot with "Fish On!"

    If memory serves Steve found 6 of these blanks and needed one of them for a rod repair and built out at least a couple that I know of. No clue if he has any left, a total joy (think Bamboo type action) to cast.

    I have had a chance to fish mark's rods and reels over the years. He does some great work!
