Jim,
I guess when it comes to the "fairy wands",wouldn't you think that the newer generations have made them more popular?
By that I mean when I was coming up in the late 50s and through the 60s,all we had were the cane poles,bamboo,and fiberglass...at least when it came to po' boys like me.Although I wasn't into the fly fishing in the mountains,when it comes to a long "pole",that's what we always called them,a long stiff one was the norm,and so it doesn't seem like a big step backwards to use one that's 9' or so in length.
It's only been since I got interested in mountain fishing that I've seen the difference of light years that's progressed in flyrods.If I wasn't "afeared" of being laughed at,I would use the long fiberglass pole sometimes.
Rick
