Default Re: "Trash" fish on bamboo

Great posting here!

I've caught everything from brook trout to king salmon on my cane rods. Of course you have to pick the fights wisely and have enough rod for the fish but my 6 weight Orvis has landed some beauties.

The rod looks a beauty and the fish attest to the strength of the build. Great post,

Ard

Thanks, first time I've heard of them. I looked at them on a couple websites, they look nice...and the available finishes/graphics/patterns(?) are really appealing.

The "grinnel" (So Louisiana name) rules! Some call them "green trout" too. From a brown eyed cajun boy that is a trophy for sure. Mouth full of teeth and bad attitude. Just what we like in a fish.

Nice going.
