Think you got what it takes to throw the vintage stuff at ole esox????? I did and loved every second of it. From the reel to the patterns I tried to keep the synthetics out and the the natural in. It paid off with a banner of and evening a few weeks back. Tarpon style patterns and bucktails were on point. Every now and then it's good to remember that bamboo at one time was state of the art....I love it! Tight Lines and if you do go out and try this please let me know what you thought!
