Default noobie intro

I'm not sure of the intro protocol here. I used to post on several other forums but have lost interest and need a new place to post. I am a bamboo rod maker and am also looking to do some shameless self promotion.

No better way than to post some pics.

Is this a flathead catfish? I see you're no stranger to gar, either! Where are you located, rodco? Beautiful rods, too. I really like the one with the spalted maple (?) handle.
