Did any one get a chance to meet Bob Clay and cast his awsome cane rods? Bob resides on the Kispiox River and builds amazing cane rods. His "ferrule" system is quite something to see (it involves scotch tape). If you appreciate a labor of love, you have to cast one of these. My favorite was the 12 footer. If you slow down a bit, it throws a great line. Some day I'm gonna own one. He's a classy guy who builds classy rods.
