    Yeah its just a skinny cane pole but thats whats cool about it. No reel and is telescopic down to 15" so I can pack it anywhere. I always play the fish and like light tackle so it fits the bill.

    Lefty Kreh said it was a fad. I guess he was wrong.

    It probably is but for me there's nothing like having a nice trout online with a 2lb test leader. Thats why I like fly fishing. I get more feel of the whole process from strike to landing them. I release most all unless I plan dinner. :)

    I have a small 5' 2 piece ultra-light rod and reel with 6#.
    It flicks a fly with a little casting bobber. It's easy to pack and set-up and it's easy to control in tight quarters.

    I grow 20 different types of bamboo. I could make a rod for pennies if I wanted a swisher like the originals.

    That's what we called them. Swishers.

    Old timers would use them to fish in the fire water. The phosphorescence makes the water glow so they had to fish straight up and down from a bridge to avoid the fire on the line. Snook won't bite if the line is glowing.

    They'd swish a plug with a tie on top around in a figure 8 until a snook popped it.

    Lol......thats not fishing. Thats a frenzy. I actually had that happen on a boat with barracuda when I was 11 years old. If you used bait you were wasting time because a silver hook worked just as good. I caught 23 with in minutes and thru-up on them on the way back home in the back of the truck. Lol
