That is an awsome lookin rod Troutman! Where did you find it? My dad had an old glass rod from the late 70's that i used a couple of times when I was a kid. Don't know the brand, it was black and neon greenish, similar thread pattern to your vint rod, who knows maybe it is the same brand. I really didnt know what I was doing back then and would love to get my hands on it now. He doesnt use it any more, so maybe i can grab it next time i visit, think its probably an 6-7 wt, it seems as if it were shorter and lighter than my current 8wt. Thanks for the sweet pics!
