    I fail to follow your logic. Ignorance is the lack of knowledge; which is something that one cannot always be held accountable for; for a multitude of reasons. Stupidity is a failure to...

    As a budding teenager back in the '40's, I made a promise to my father, that I do not intend to break here. I promised him that I would never duel with women, children, or...

    You speak as if I have no experience, or knowledge of the subject. How short sighted. I have been at this sport for 50 years now, and have rubbed elbows with many very knowledgeable...

    The problem we have is that you think "Trout" rods. I don't have a problem with that. However, you would most definitely be 'underguuned' if you fished saltwater or weed/snag infested waters for...

    What a pity you don't use that knot on your shoulders for something besides a hat rack! As my paternal Grandfather would say: "Nichts kommt aus der Lachmanns Haus." I will translate for...

    In today's world, the weight of a bamboo rod does not mean as much as it once did. I have fished with most of the rods previously named in my earlier post in lengths up to 9 ft., including Heddon's...

    Responding with comments on each and every rod listed is a tall order, as some warrant more comment than others.
