A huge storm was coming in from the North Atlantic, giving me just a few minutes to fish the calm before the storm. Driven to a frenzy by the river´s feasting trout and further aggrevated by the sound of some guy drilling a hole for a flag pole outside his summer cottage, I experienced some… Read more »

Modern Splitcane Rods – Tradition and Performance
