    Hey Joe,
    It's a 756 with a m serial number
    Made in 1974 or 75
    Reel seat is original to rod as far as I can tell.
    I have no doubt you'll catch um.

    By that model number (correct me if I'm wrong) it should be a 7 1/2 footer for a 6 weight line. Ever try it with a 7 weight line? I know that many Fenwicks will cast fine going up a line weight. With some it is an improvement only in that it allows larger stuff, such as bass bugs and big streamers, to be cast a little easier. With others there is not much noticeable difference. BTW, thanks for the encouragement. I hope I can be as positive as you. I will probably go out next Tuesday. Will let you know how it goes.

    Your right 7 1/2 foot ,6wgt line.
    756 is fast for a fiberglass rod.
    It cast better with a 7wgt.for me and
    I haven't tried it but i bet it would handle an
    8wgt .

    Nice fish. Nice rod. Nice reel. I love those vintage Bronson fly reels. I have a 360 exactly like yours and an other one with a green spool and silver frame. I also have a 370 that is red and has a real cool drag system.

    Well, it looks like it might be September before I will be able to do any smallmouth fishing. Been to the handicapped spot a couple of times and the river was invaded by toe wetters. There were three car loads of them the last time I went. So, we've got the tubers in town and the toe wetters at all the other accessible spots out from town. I guess they will all be gone after Labor Day. I believe the tubing companies close up right after Labor Day. Then, the only thing we will have to contend with are the Fall color watchers. They are not as bad nor as numerous as the others as I remember. Looks like I will be sticking to trout fishing in the Park until the smallmouth spots are fishable again, and that's not such a bad thing.
