    No, no fishing, so I figured I just make a nice display featuring the rod poised with a pair of Dormisch-Absi reels and Marryat Baby.:rofl:

    Thanks all for the comments. It sure is a "looker".
    Waiting for a Kineya reel to mate it with.
    It'll be one of the rods headin' to Idaho in Sept.

    That is a beauty! 7'7"3/4 may be my favorite length whether glass/plastic/boo. Great looking rod. Congrats!

    My brother got Cabelas fiberglass rod in the 7 1/2 foot 5/6 but casting a Rio 4wt grand on it. For the money I believe it is the best one. He can cast just about all the line out. You did say short so they make it in a 5 and I think a 6 foot rod. I like the 7 1/2 so much I will be get one also. Good luck!

    I just bought a 6 1/2 foot Eagle Claw parabolic fiberglass rod. It is a 3-4 weight and it the original old yellow color, with a wood reel seat. I bought it at the Sportsman Warehouse (or whatever they call it now) and it was $14.99!!!!! I bought it because it reminded me of my old Eagle Claw spinning rod I had when I was a kid. I threw a cheap orvis clearwater reel on it and it casts like a dream. Cannot wait to go fish some small streams with it. I will use it when I am not fishing my 3 weight Sage.
