Look carefully for the brand name or maker's name.
I don't know your skill level, but I'm a klutz so I sent mine back to the company and it was refinished by a great grandson of the maker.

you burst my bubble but it is the same here. We have big bluegills but as you said if a lake is underfished it is full of 2" gills. Here a 5# bass is a big bass (I have never caught a 5# bass and I have done a lot of bass fishing). I think you guys use a 5#r for bait. In the spring when gills are on the beds we can catch a lot of nice fish. Other times of year it is hit or miss. Doesn't matter fishing is fun.

Yep, I love to fish.
My wife has to go with me now. I shake so bad that I can't tie on a hook, but I can still bait it up.
And she casts for me, with my tremor, I end up wrapping the line around the tip.

Thanks; I am really pumped about it being in the museum.
I can look at that picture and go back in time 70 years.

That rod is 84 years old.
