Great link - thanks very much for it. There is some really excellent photography there and some interesting things as well. For instance apparently one can catch mullet on a flyrod - didn't know that. And check out the grip on this rod.

It's really neat although one would think the raised parts on the grip itself would be uncomfortable after a while. Guess they're tough enough. Looks like the rod has landed a lot of carp.

Again, thanks very much for the link.

This is really an amazing video and I've watched it several times. I didn't know one could cast a fly as far as the one guy did in that one cast. The video is so well done that it makes me wonder if others of similar quality have been put out by the same people that did this one. Anyone know?

Thanks.

RCV, Google "Once in a Blue Moon, Flyfishing Adventure of a Lifetime" for some excellent long casting, then go rent/buy the movie and be amazed.
