I like to call my rods the "C&R" followed by the year and rod number, IE. . . C&R 2006-02. C&R is Catch and Release. Sometimes also if I build or design a rod for a specific purpose, like the one I worked on last winter I name it that. For instance, NMW 2005. North Maine Woods 2005. I just can't bring myself to part with my rods, so I feel no mis-givings about naming them this way.
