Cane And Silk, Another Fly Rod
A couple of months ago Mike Kattner from Cane and Silk Fly Rods reached out and asked me to field test a fiberglass fly rod. The rod is built for small streams but may also be used on larger waters. The rod is beautifully made and he has done fine work on the classy but simple features which highlight the rod. The rod is a 6' 3 piece rated for a 2 or 3 weight line. The color is what Mike calls "Lizard Green", the color is very pleasing. It comes with a uplocking reel seat, and the cork handle is of cork that is not full of filler. The rod balances very well and the casting stroke feels "just right".
Mike does a beautiful job of highlighting the rod guides with the proper color thread. The overall finish of the rod is outstanding. I have not tried this rod on the stream but plan to very soon. The rod comes with a flannel bag, which is nice and soft.
