As my new friend Joni requested, I'll introduce myself. I've been fly fishing for some 25 years, I consider myself an average angler. I tie my flies. In the past year, I've taken something of a step back. I bought an old Fenwick glass rod. I must admit I love it and found a new passion. I guess I secretly want to go back to when I started this fine sport. That's not all, I shopped around and found a 50 year old cedar canvas canoe to go with it. I guess it's like other things in life when you get on in years. You try to hold on to the things that meant something in your younger life. Enough of this sentimental c$*p. Now if I can only find a reel that would match that rod just right.
