fiberglass rod doesn't as pristine as yours. I enjoy fishing my old rods, I have a bunch of them, bamboo, fiberglass and a couple of early graphite. Enjoy fishing your new rod. The fish wont know the difference.

I doubt if I would have ever bought this rod for myself. I'm pretty well fixed up in the trout rod department. But he was so impressed with the rod that he thought I "needed" one. I'll fish it though! I especially like the thought of a short belly line on a short rod.

That's a nice rod. My former co-worker retired to Helena has an old early 70s Fenwick 7 1/2' 5 wt that I cast last summer. He should give it to me since he's incapable of appreciating really good fishing tackle.
I agree. Let's assemble a mob and go get it!

Who needs a fly rod? I have around 60 of them. I don't need a rod, I want a rod. LOL

A friend (that wouldn’t know a 5 from a 9wt) borrowed a 7’6” 5wt Fenwick several years back and brought it on the annual fishing trip. He never fished, but one afternoon some of us were lawn casting in the meadow, trying each other’s gear. He handed me the rod and within a couple false casts my jaw nearly hit the ground. OMG, best Fenwick I’ve ever thrown. Really sweet.

You get that cork patina that is gonna be a picturesque combo....cork handle looks pretty good, not much filler. I’m a bit envious now.
