Re: Define a "Technical Rod"
To me,,,it means when you cast a 'bug' onto a leaf at 30ft,,and gently slide it off,,,and make it look exactly like drama unfolding on the stream....
Or have a dry come down so soft, it appears to have 'some' will left to still try and remain airborne.
I know the game varies with the fisher'person. To the next guy it maybe be hitting a feeding seam on a river at 75 ft with a streamer.
It MAY mean material development for a specific blank. I just know what it means to me.
Probably though,,,It's marketing.
We used to call it skill.
All the romance of trout fishing exists in the mind of the angler and is in no way shared by the fish.
