    Picked up a Shakespeare glass rod. Label is worn off. No idea what weight it is. Lucky for me, the unidentified line on the South Bend clicker I got at the same time casts like a dream. A very slow dream. I got the whole enchilada for $40. And so it begins...

    I like Shakespeare glass rods with the wound fiberglass. Nice rods.

    Sometimes the old rods cast as well as new rods. I fish with rods that are many decades old. Have fun! :)
