Nice,

Imagine Old Johnny with a modern 9' 6 weight fast action graphite, I think he would get the backing with it.

That was neat. So the "double haul" has been around awhile.

Great stuff, He looks like a young Ronald Reagan. Believe it or not, I still use that old 1 to 2 technique in my casting classes. I also incorporate my V method. Great stuff! Thanks for sharing.

Very cool post on "Johnny".

The action on that rod that he's using reminds me a lot of some of the vintage glass rods that I fish during the year; very slow action, a lot of flex and the need for a big casting stroke; particularly on the forward cast.

Thanks for that!
