yep.

while I'm biased by glass, a good rod is a good rod, and true art is true art.
everyone that has ever cast a fly, would do themselves a favor by learning who Tom Morgan is, and about his contributions to the flyfishing world.

Indeed so.

The fly rod could be a golf club, tennis racquet, baseball bat, a curling broom, whatever...

It's really the person holding the thing.

Yeah have your master wait on you hand and foot, dogs know the secret of life.

I believe it is life itself.

I am not a musician but I think that a fly rod is more like a musical instrument than just another piece of sports equipment.

As I have fished and my casting has changed/improved, so have my preferences and appreciation of what a great rod is to me.

On the other hand, given a choice between one of Tom's bamboo rods and a month of all expense paid fishing somewhere, I'd opt to go fishing.

Experiences are more valuable than things.
