TESTIMONIAL

" I have much pleasure in testifying to the merits of your
split-cane rods, both for fly-fishing and spinning. I have had
several in constant use for a good many years, and have been
very pleased with them both in point of action and their
casting qualities. For general excellence I do not think there
is a better rod on the market.
