    Forgive my ignorance, but I'm trying to figure out how to use a 10" telescoping Shakespeare Wonderpole. To me, it looks like a fly fishing pole, but I'm not sure.

    No directions came with it, and I'm a beginner. I've looked all over the web, but have found very little.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks. :CONFUSED

    I think you have what is used in the South and Midwest as a modern version of a 'cane pole'. You just tie a piece of mono to the tip the same length as the pole, rig up a jig and bobber, lower the whole thing into the water along side some brush pile, and you're suddenly Crappie fish'n. (pronounced 'Croppie').
