If you are in the market for a quality rod, don't forget about Impulse Fishing Rods. I just received my shipment last week. Top of the line solid rods built right here in Texas. If you are interested, get a hold of Lance Stringer at Impulse, he can point you in the right direction for a rod to use for any technique. If you feel the need to get your hands on one, get over to Anglers Pro Tackle, Rick Wallace has them in the shop. Click on the links in my signature for more information. Thanks guys.
