I've been reconnecting with fiberglass fishing rods lately. For some reason, that super-flexy action makes me feel more connected with the fish. And, by the way, I think noodling around with fiberglass rods is one of the best ways to hone your casting skills. Fiberglass won't cover up your casting flaws like fast graphite will. Fiberglass places the premium on timing and tempo... exactly where it belongs.
