Wink When you find gold in your inheritance

So, I just found / realized I've got this sweet little golden colored Eagle Claw fiberglass rod That my dad left me. It's 6'6". Good size for the mountains right??

I'll have to buy a little reel to put on it ( or use the old Cortland reel I already have, and put a different reel on my nymphing rod.)

orey -

Great photos and post! You might want to keep you eyes peeled for the January 2018 cover photo on our Facebook page now.

Brings tears to my eyes. I had the 6'6" also and donated it to a young fella whom I thought was going to be interested in fly fishing. He never took to it. Hope he passed it along to someone who will use it. We actually sell more Eagle Claw glass rods than any other brand. They're perfect for north Georgia.

This sort of thing has been discussed before. The awesomeness of the Eagle Claw lives on...

Don't know how I missed your thread Buckman. You've got a long way to go before you can wrangle in those 12" specks like me and dawg, but if you're willing to pay cash, I will put you on three or five. I hear those eagle claws fish best with a splitshot and a worm. That's just what I've heard. Overlook the worm guts on my rod handle!
Now that deer season is over, we need to head over to the middle fork and chase some of those bespeckled slabs!
