5 1/2 foot, one piece, 5 weight small stream taper ( very fast action)

This little rod has made me a lot of friends. It is for fishing in tight quarters, but will also cast suprising distance for a 5 1/2 foot rod. I normally fish a 5 wgt. line on small streams, and a 4 wgt. on larger ones. A Triangle Taper 4/5 is also a good match. This was published in an early Planing Form.--- Tom
