I did. One of my hobbies.
I've made a few of my own cane blanks, but that is built from a 1922 salmon rod that was trashed. I stripped it and cut it down to seven feet and refinished it as a spinner.
Modern guides, reel seat, and grips, with cobra skin accents, and flamed rattan wrapped cork.





Clear wrap over the eyes, the snake is tipped with a silver/black furl and single strand silver end tips.

The George, btw. He came over on a boat named, George.
George was a good boat, he liked it when they took him on long walks.

Indeed, we have just such a hatchery here outside the nearest town. It's done amazing things for the salmon population around here, wild salmon is still protected.

Hey jack, the Cowboys defense is innovative and was perfect in their last game. They allowed Chicago to score on all 8 drives! And what other team in the league has a defense that tries to confuse the other team by taking a knee on 4th and short? Tell me that is not innovative!

I see your defense and raise you one Redskins special teams unit with a side of owners/head coach/star qb controversy.
