I've got a few split cane rods, including two I made myself. Most of mine are lower end rods, like South Bend and Granger. I do have an Orvis Shooting Star and a 9 1/2' E.C. Powell. And as of a couple weeks ago, I've added to my Peter McVey collection, so I've got them in 5, 6, and 7 wt. I really love those, and Peter's workmanship is equivalent to Winston and T&T. My daughters will like inheriting those some day. Sincerely, Salmo g.
