My first trout this year on a size 24 trico was caught on June 23rd with my 1970 vintage fiberglass Phillipson DF76 "Swamp Fox". IMO it is really fun to fish with older fly tackle. Bamboo and glass are far from dead sir.

guess you've never seen any of the crap I fish with! 90% is vintage stuff, the new stuff is all glass.
Just because it is vintage does not mean it is "crap". My old Phillipson is a good example. I love fiberglass both old and new. It sounds like you do too.

Well since you put it in those terms I guess I like fishing with "Crap" too.

Fully 20 years ago nobody wanted anything nostalgic (old tech =crap) now everyone feels technology has become too overbearing and feels the need to go back in time. Hell even black socks are back in style.

As Yvon Chouinard puts it with ditching all the latest tech fly rods to go off and use a $150 Tenkara Rod, $15 in line, and 3-4 flies.

“turn around and take a forward”

and hes right.

just because you are stuck in your western mentality ways of complexitiy and complicated western systems, rammcatt, is no reason to reject the zen like sublime simplicity of ancient japanese Tenkada arts of fly fishing.

one can assume a samurai like code of piscine bushido, a zen like mind slate of less is more, armed with a humble container of sakasa kebari, i am able to focus on using my katana of trout catching, i focus my chi and propel it through the supple graphite of tenkara rod, and i can make my kebari dance to trout delight.

you, clearly, are of a western mindset, too stuck in your material trappings to understand one can free themselves of the reel shackle, than when you embrace Tenkara, you are the ninja of the stream. as i am. humble i am to fish, understanding only my Tenkara rod and my humble, furled line and ancient one fly way.

I am a predator, and all fish succumb to me like wheat before the scythe.

Free your mind, rammcatt.

Agreed, western guys like Rammy (west of Harrisburg I would say) have closed minds. Carry on.

Ninety five percent of my fishing is with a cane flyrod and silkline. I am not trying to embody or hang onto some form of elitist status or like, but I simply find it is the best tool. How much more apache helicopter technology can a flyrod absorb and translate into performance on the water.....Kinda like how many licks it takes to find the center of a tootsie pop.

I love graphite on lakes, saltwater and some ponds....everything for me has it's place.

Or put down the numchucks, skip the yoga class and catch more fish.

Sage going full circle and coming out with the "Circa" proves only further the biggest impediment to catching fish, is the 2 legged thing attached to butt end of the rod.

The Circa is an overt attempt to build a product to appeal to a market that isn't interested in the latest and greatest. Choice is good.

I grew up fishing a short fiberglass rod on small to mid size streams. When I got out on my own and could afford to, I bought a 9' 5wt graphite fast-cation rod and started down the path of finding the most ruthlessly effiecient tool for catching fish.

I was a fair caster but it was not until I got some actual instruction that I became truely proficient. Once that happened, I realized that I enjoyed casting a slower action rod for the feel and feedback and didn't need a fast action to do what I wanted to do.

Fast forward and I now fish mostly with bamboo not to show off but because I like the nostalgia of it. Kind of like going rabbit hunting with your Grandfather's side-by-side. I still have my glass rod and proudly fish that on occasion, too.

I have been a little long-winded but my point is that fishing should be fun and people should fish what makes them smile and don't be offended if someone tried to turn you on to something new, or old.

But you and I are South Eastern Onii-san, hai! We understand the subtle ways of TENKAHRA Eastern mystical fly fishing. The Rammcatts and those who are stuck in the silly Western ways do not understand our powers, to make the dancing kebabs of insectasorial delight and torment our piscine opponents into our dance, our aquatic nishimonai bon odor.

We are of the calm, zenlike mind of the Eastern Trout Warrior, unclouded by material trappings or reels. And a little bit south. Crunked Eastern Trout Warriors, but only a touch, hai!

Saraba, Afish-san.
