Thanks, Stan. That elkhorn sounds really interesting to me. I have been casting off and on for 30 years and I have two rods...an Orvis 4 piece 9' pack rod circa about 1980, and a 9' Sage of similar age, now snapped in half due to it getting caught between the ground and a 10 year old heel. Notice I said "casting". I have yet to learn how to actually catch fish! Thanks for the advice.
