Cool old glass Fenwick and vintage reel Jerry. You really should update those wading boots though!

My son (bless his heart) slammed the door on my 4 piece Fenwick pack rod I bought in 1968 (or was it '67?) a couple years ago. He felt horrible about it. It gave me an excuse to go buy another bamboo rod though, so it wasn't so bad.

Great shots of your gear and the pinks!

I love Fenwicks! My first good fly rod was an 8' 8wt. that I used for everything from lake fishing to trolling flies for Silvers off Neah Bay. This was back in the 1960's.

Fenwicks were designed by NW Washington guys for local fishing. After the Company was sold, rod designer Don Green helped found Sage. So, just like with bamboo rods, the rodmaker makes a big difference! There's a good history of these rods on Fenwick's web site. http://www.fenwickfishing.com/about_history.php

Besides owning half a dozen glass rods (all of my sub-8' rods), I believe three of you own a glass rod I sold to you: Josh, don't you have a Steffen I sold you? I know Mumbles has a 7'3" Lami honey 4wt custom I sold him, and Jerry's stack of Fenwicks includes a 706 I sold him that he drove all the way to Bellevue to pick up. That's dedication to a Fenwick addiction.

Lugan, you know I love that rod. What are you selling me next?
