    Default The Glasser Trial (TR)

    Mojo's TFM post reminded me...


    I'd been wanting to try out out the whole vintage glass thing for a while now. I found a rod for the price of a good twelve pack and headed out to the local trickle in pursuit of pickles.

    New school meets old school



    Caught a Rio Grande Perch worth two pics



    Learned that sunfish spawn is still pending


    Badly captured a RGP in its element


    And wrapped up the day with another decent sunfish


    Woulda taken more pics, but I was enjoying the whiskey sour I froze in a bike bottle and toted along too much.

    Caught about 35, and got to watch most of the eats.

    That'll do.

    I'd rather hunt fish than bait deer any day.

    Hey Cliff

    It sure looks like you had a good time. I don't know much about the old glass rods, I do have one that was my dad's. I used it out west for a week once found this beaver pond and the game was one, what a blast...

    OK, now as far as the whiskey sours go (LOL) man it has been many years but as I recall they need to be really cold....and can do a number on you in the heat!

    There certainly is something about using old school tools in an activity that adds something....well.....more to the experience. I do love my old Finwick. Great sounding day and pictures.

    Nice Cliff. Thanks for sharing those.
    Got a newb question. What knot are you using in the first RGP picture to tie your fly that leaves the loop? I like that knot or more the thought that the fly is going to stay in line with the tippet.
