Hello,
I thought that you might like to see my Atlantic Salmon rod I bought this afternoon. Last year I had such a fun time salmon fishing that I have decided to get my license from now on. Here is the address that has some pictures of the rod:

Looks like a good rod Tim.
Its always fun on the river fish or no fish.
My story about a bamboo rod I would like to tell.
I took a fellow out Shad fishing on the Annapolis a few years ago.
He was from Chicago so had heard of shad but never fished them.
He had a new rod - Graphite I guess and a rod his
Grandfather had given him. A beautiful old bamboo rod. He said
his Grandfather had told him to catch one fish on it and then hang it up
in an honoured spot.
As the river was high and fast and we were using weighted flies, I said
why not use your new rod here and we'll go catch a nice trout
with the bamboo. Nothing doing - he was insulted that I thought the Bamboo
was not up to the task even though it was dried and cracked.
Anyway it wasn't long before he hooked a nice fish. Who decided to go down
river at a good speed. All of a sudden there was a crack like a rifle and
pieces of bamboo were flying everywhere. What will I tell my Grandfather?
was the first thing he said. Tell him it died in battle and you can make
the fish as big as you like.
Enjoy the rod
Paul

Ahahahahahaha.... thanks for sharing, Paul. I don't think there would be a better way for a rod to go then battling a nice fish. Without any prior experience with a cane rod, it should be interesting and I'm looking forward to it. Thanks, bud, for your kindness and for sharing a great story.
